With respect to gravity sensing in gravitropism, the classic starch statolith hypothesis, i.
Differential sensitivity to auxin helps explain Darwin’s original observation that stems and roots respond in the opposite way to the forces of gravity.
SpaldingMoritoshi Iino The Plant journal: Mutants with altered responses to gravity have been isolated in several plant species including Arabidopsis thaliana one of the genetic model systems used for plant research.
Plants can reorient their growth direction by sensing organ tilt relative to the direction of gravity. Statocytes are located in the starch parenchyma cells near vascular tissues in the shoots and in the columella in the caps of the roots. In addition the mutated gene can be identified, and thus something about its function inferred from the mutant phenotype.

Directional gravity sensing in gravitropism.
Root growth occurs by division of stem cells in the root meristem located in the tip of the root, and the subsequent asymmetric expansion of cells in a shoot-ward region to the tip known as the elongation zone.
Juliette JouhetJ. With respect to gravity sensing in gravitropism, the classic starch statolith hypothesis, i. Topics Discussed in This Paper.
Mechanism of gravity perception in higher plants. Phytochromes are red and far-red photoreceptors that help induce changes in certain aspects of plant development. Gravitropic mutants have been identified that affect starch accumulation, such as those affecting the PGM1 which encodes the enzyme phosphoglucomutase gene in Arabidopsiscausing plastids – the presumptive statoliths – to be less dense and, in support of the starch-statolith hypothesis, less sensitive to gravity.
Statolith sedimentation kinetics and force transduction to the cortical endoplasmic reticulum in gravity-sensing Arabidopsis columella cells.
Takeshi YoshiharaEdgar P. Gravitropism also known as geotropism is a coordinated process of differential growth by a plant or fungus in response to gravity pulling on it. Gravity is sensed in the root tip and this information must then be relayed to the elongation zone so as to maintain growth direction and mount effective growth responses to changes in orientation to and continue to grow its roots in the same direction as gravity.

This behavior is described as a “tipping point” mechanism for auxin transport in response to a gravitational stimulus. Some are trees that have a weeping or pendulate growth habit ; the branches still respond to gravity, but with a positive response, rather than the normal negative response. Plastids and gravitropic sensing Fred David Sack Planta The model was independently proposed by the Russian scientist N.
Specific emphasis is made on the remarkable differences in the cytological properties, developmental origins, tissue locations, and response of statocytes between root and shoot systems.
Differential growth during tropisms mainly involves changes in cell expansion versus changes in cell division, although a role for cell division in tropic growth has not been formally ruled out.
