    14 Colored vector bosons from new strong dynamics, Kaluza-Klein gluons or KKg’s (G*) in a dual 5D picture, have been searched for mainly in the t-tbar channel.  In this model, the third generation quarks couple differently than the light quarks under an extended

     102Above the threshold for decays into a single top quark, GH has two main decay modes: the decay into gluons, which occurs at loop-level similar to single coloron production, and the flavor-violating decay into tc. The corresponding rates are:
