Soybeans grown in soil infected with fungal pathogens were analyzed. It was discovered that lectin, a protein, was found to be in high concentration around the soybean roots. The apical meristem was analyzed, and 1000 cells were compared to soybean root cells without the influence of lectin. The following information of observed data was recorded:
Interphase Mitosis Table 1: Onion Root Tip Observed Values
A chi-square test was performed, analyzing the difference between cells treated with lectin in mitosis and control cells in mitosis. The chi-square value was greater than 3.84, where p = 0.05 and degrees of freedom = 1.
Which of the following can be concluded from this data?
