ISS Science for Everyone

Science Objectives for Everyone
Seedling Growth-3 is the third part of the Seedling Growth Experiment series, using the plant Arabidopsis thaliana to investigate the effects of gravity on the cellular signaling mechanisms of light sensing in plants (phototropism), and to investigate cell growth and proliferation responses to light stimulation under microgravity conditions. The investigation also seeks to determine:  (1) the red light effect on blue-light-based phototropism and its effects, (2) the alterations in red-light-based phototropism of plants defective in essential components of auxin transport or lacking essential factors of cell growth and proliferation, and (3) the effects of a red light photostimulation on cell growth and proliferation under conditions of gravitational stress.
