Fig. S1. Localization of L-citrulline in the peduncle, ? and ? lobes. (A): The central core of the peduncle and ? lobe are devoid of any label, whereas intense immunoactivity appears at the periphery of the structures. The ? lobe shows weaker labeling. (B): Localization of L-citrulline in the ? lobe. As in the ? lobe, immunoreactivity is essentially located at the periphery of the lobe. ?: alpha lobe; ?: beta lobe; ?: gamma lobe; p: peduncle: pc: posterior calyx. Scale bar = 100 ?m.
