The basipetal movement of statoliths in Chara rhizoids, similar to that during parabolic flights of TEXUS rockets occurs also during rotation on clinostats. Within 15 min on fast-rotating clinostat, the distance between the center of the statolith complex and the cell vertex increases for 60% of that in positively gravitropic downward growing rhizoids… CONTINUE READING
