Plastid Distribution in Columella Cells of a Starchless Arabidopsis Mutant Grown in Microgravity

Academic Article


  • Wild-type and starchless Arabidopsis thaliana mutant seedlings (TC7) were grown and fixed in the microgravity environment of a U.S. Space Shuttle spaceflight. Computer image analysis of longitudinal sections from columella cells suggest a different plastid positioning mechanism for mutant and wild-type in the absence of gravity.
