Gravistimulation enhanced balance between initiation and development.
Figures are generally photos, graphs and static images that would be represented in traditional pdf publications.
(A) Initiation density and emerged lateral root density were scored for plants gravistimulated according to the gravistimulation protocol presented in . The results are given for primordia located in gravistimulated zones. Measurements were normalized in regard to the emergence density of non-gravistimulated plants. Each data point corresponds to a set of more than 20 seedlings. Non-gravistimulated Col-0 seedlings were used as a control group. (B) Emergence of lateral roots in gravistimulated roots. White bar: emerged lateral root percentage. Gray bar: non-emerged primordia percentage. Non gravistimulated Col-0 seedling were used as a control. (C) Distribution of primordia developmental stages for the 24 h time between gravistimulation treatment. White bar: primordia appearing and developing between gravistimulation (n = 72). Black bar: primordia appearing and developing in root turns (n = 373). (D) Initiation and emergence densities predicted by the mechanistic model with the added hypothesis of a drop of ET under gravistimulation.
