Pods of common bean in the green and mature state showing original stringless and revertant stringy state.
Fig. 1 Pod phenotypes of plant materials of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). (a–f) Six stringless cultivars of snap bean. No suture string is present in pods at seed fill stage (stage R8; Fern´andez et al., 1983) or dry mature pods. (g–l) Stringy revertants of each of the varieties shown above. When these pods are broken, a strong string can easily be removed from the sutures at both maturity stages. (a, g), cv ‘Pismo’; (b, h), cv ‘Prevail’; (c, i), cv ‘Hystyle’; (d, j), cv ‘Galveston’; (e, k), cv ‘BBL1560; (f, l), cv ‘Huntington’; (m), stringless wax bean cv ‘Midas’, which has been frequently included in studies of pod fibre traits.

Microscopic section of suture regions of stringless (a) and stringy revertant (b) pods of common bean, showing reduced cell wall thickening and absence of dehiscence zone in stringless pods. c. and d. are close-ups of  absence and presence of dehiscence zone, respectively.
Fig. 2 Plants of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) with elevated PvIND expression levels produce an over-abundance of weak ‘dehiscence-zone’ (dz) cells throughout the ‘vascular bundle sheath’ (vs) fibre layer, leading to loss of pod strings. Anatomical comparison of (a) nonstringy lines with elevated PvIND expression and (b) stringy revertant pods with lower PvIND expression. In (a) nonstringy accessions, vs cells are weak, with little to no secondary cell wall thickening and just 1–3 lignified cell layers, whereas (b) stringy revertants have strong secondary thickening and 3–6 fibre cell layers, except in the weak central dz along which dehiscence occurs in susceptible varieties. In nonstringy types with PvIND overexpression, overspecification of these weak dz-like cells occurs throughout the vs, leading to the lack of pod suture string. Samples (a) ‘BBL156’ (Nampa-20, nonrevertant) and (b) ‘Hystyle’ (Nampa-3, revertant) are shown. Photographs (c, d) are more highly magnified images of photographs (a, b), with primary (1°) and secondary (2°) cell walls labelled.

Molecular basis of the stringless trait (duplication of the PvIND gene, leading to its higher expression) and reversion to the stringy state (loss of the duplication, including transposable element).
Fig. 4 PvIND sequence structure differences between stringy and nonstringy accessions of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris). (a) Stringy accessions such as G19833 have a single copy of PvIND without retrotransposon. By contrast, (b) nonstringy accessions such as Hystyle show a tandem duplication of PvIND, with a retrotransposon inserted at the beginning of the duplicated region. These sequence features may cause the PvIND overexpression associated with loss of pod strings. Primer binding sites and amplicons used for evaluating tandem duplication and retrotransposon presence are shown.
