Sedimentable amyloplasts in starch sheath cells of woody stems of Japanese cherry.


We examined whether sedimentable amyloplasts act as statolith in the perception of gravity in woody stems using the elongated internodes of Japanese cherry (Prunus jamasakura Sieb. ex Koidz.). In the internode of the seedlings grown on earth, amyloplasts were found sedimented at the distal end of each cell of the endodermal starch sheath tissue. In the… (More)
