  • a Gravitropic curvature of hypocotyls was measured 6 h after reorientation for etiolated seedlings and 24 h after reorientation for seedlings grown in low light.

  • b P values were obtained by two-tailed Student's t test for equal variance and are the comparison of curvature in Ws versus rcn1.

  • c Each value is the average ±se for at least 40 plants from four experiments.

  • d Each value is the average ±se for at least 30 plants from three experiments.
