Lentil root statoliths reach a stable state in microgravity

Abstract

 The kinetics of the movement of statoliths in gravity-perceiving root cap cells of Lens culinaris L. and the force responsible for it have been analysed under 1 g and under microgravity conditions (S/MM-03 mission of Spacehab 1996). At the beginning of the experiment in space, the amyloplasts were grouped at the distal pole of the statocytes by a root-tip… (More)
