When stimulated to bend downward by being held at 45 degrees off vertical but unable to penetrate into agar-based media, Arabidopsis roots develop waving and looping growth patterns. Here, we demonstrate that ethylene modulates these responses. We determined that agar-containing plates sealed with low-porosity film generate abiotic ethylene concentrations of 0.1 to 0.3 microL L(-1), whereas in plates wrapped with porous tape, ethylene remains at trace levels. We demonstrate that exogenous… CONTINUE READING
