Cell cultures of Arabidopsis thaliana (cv. Columbia) were used to screen for early alterations in gene expression as a response to altered gravitational fields. Genes of interest were selected from a larger group whose expression was altered under hypergravity (microarray study; M. Martzivanou and R. Hampp, Physiol. Plant. 118: 221–231, 2003). Transcriptional changes of these genes were studied within a time frame of up to 10 min of exposure to microgravity in a sounding-rocket experiment, to… CONTINUE READING
