To understand how GA functions in regulating embryo development, a genome-wide transcriptomic analysis was carried out using 9DAF seeds dissected from siliques of dellaq (rga28 gai rgl1 rgl2) and the wild-type (col-0-2) grown in full-spectrum white fluorescent light at 22Â°C under long day conditions (16 h light/8 h dark). Then we found that GA regulates embryo development via DELLA-LEC1interaction, a subsequent genome-wide transcriptomic analysis was carried out using 9DAF seeds dissected from siliques of lec1-4 and the wild-type (col-0-1) in the same growth condition. Basing on the criteria of 1.5-fold cutoff for the genes with 5% false discovery rate, we first identified the differentially expressed genes in dellaq vs col-0-2, lec1-4 vs Col-0-1 subsets, which are referred to as DELLA and LEC1 regulated genes. These data reveal that DELLAs and LEC1 co-target a set of common genes in late embryogenesis, strongly supporting the role of DELLA-LEC1 in embryo development. Overall design: RNA-seq analysis profiles of wild-type Col, dellaq, lec1-4 and 9DAF seeds were generated by deep sequencing, in triplicate.
