From: Expressions of ECE-CYC2 clade genes relating to abortion of both dorsal and ventral stamens in Opithandra(Gesneriaceae)

Figure 5

Diagram showing OpdCYC gene expressions correlated with the floral morphology, especially the infertility of the two ventral stamens in Opithandra , complemented by the expression of their putative negative target OpdcyclinD3 genes. Notes: dorsal staminode is in blue, lateral stamens in green and ventral staminodes in pink; the gene that is not boxed indicates this gene is expressed in a pattern as shown by the shaded parts within the circle (shaded degrees indicate relative levels of gene expression); the gene boxed indicates this gene is not expressed or has very little expression signals in the floral tissues.
