Table 3 The effect of application of 5 amino acids and 21 amino acids on flower soluble protein and amino acid content of the two Bt cotton cultivars at flowering period

From: Amino acids application enhances flowers insecticidal protein content in Bt cotton

Treatment Soluble protein content in fresh weight /(μmol·g−1·h− 1) Amino acid content in fresh weight /(μmol·g− 1·h− 1)
