Interaction of nitric oxide with auxin and ethylene signalling in Arabidopsis root gravitropism (2017)
Thesis
Vembu, K. Interaction of nitric oxide with auxin and ethylene signalling in Arabidopsis root gravitropism. (Thesis). University of the West of England

Gravitropism is required for the appropriate alignment of the plant root and shoot. According to the Cholodny-Went hypothesis, gravity induces asymmetric accumulation of auxin in the lower side of the root tissue. More recent studies on root gravitro...
