We have isolated a new recessive mutant of Arabidopsis thaliana for gravitropism, endodermal-amyloplast less 1 (eal1). eal1 shows reduced gravitropism in hypocotyl, and completely lacks gravitropism in inflorescence stems; root gravitropism is not affected. Starch staining with I-KI solution reveals almost no amyloplasts in eal1 hypocotyls when grown on a sucrose-free medium, though the root columella cells contain as many amyloplasts as wild type. On a medium containing 1% sucrose, eal1… CONTINUE READING
