SummaryThe actin cytoskeleton is involved in the positioning of statoliths in tip growingChara rhizoids. The balance between the acropetally acting gravity force and the basipetally acting net out-come of cytoskeletal force results in the dynamically stable position of the statoliths 10–30 μm above the cell tip. A change of the direction and/or the amount of one of these forces in a vertically growing rhizoid results in a dislocation of statoliths. Centrifugation was used as a tool to study the… Expand
