To visualize phytohormone localization in plant tissues, transgenic plants comprising the GUS reporter gene are often used. However, until now only qualitative assessment of the hormone presence was available. In this work, we suggested the method for IAA quantification in transgenic DR5::GUS Arabidopsis thaliana L. plants by the analysis of digital images. An empirical quadratic dependence was established between the IAA concentration in medium and the level of GUS-dependent staining. Using this method, we demonstrated that, after A. thaliana root gravistimulation for 90 min, auxin lateral redistribution occurred. It resulted in the increase in the IAA concentration in the lower root part (in the elongation zone and apical meristem) by 200% on the average.
