Role of Calcium Channels in Phytochrome-Mediated Regulation of Gravitropic Response

Role of Calcium Channels in Phytochrome-Mediated Regulation of Gravitropic Response The effect of the inhibitors of calcium channels on red-light (R)-mediated inhibition of gravitropic bending was studied in excised wheat (Triticum aestivumL.) coleoptiles. The effect of a short R pulse (2 min) preceding the gravitropic stimulation was completely alleviated by a similar pulse of far-red light (FR), when the latter preceded the gravitropic stimulation and the delay between R and FR pulses did not exceed 20 min.

Abstract

The effect of the inhibitors of calcium channels on red-light (R)-mediated inhibition of gravitropic bending was studied in excised wheat (Triticum aestivumL.) coleoptiles. The effect of a short R pulse (2 min) preceding the gravitropic stimulation was completely alleviated by a similar pulse of far-red light (FR), when the latter preceded the gravitropic stimulation and the delay between R and FR pulses did not exceed 20 min. Plant memory of the R pulse lasted up to 40 min. Neither R nor FR exerted any effect on the gravitropic reaction when applied after gravitropic stimulation. Treatment with 1 μM of verapamil, LaCl3, GdCl3, or ruthenium red before the gravitropic stimulation prevented or released the R-exerted suppression of the gravitropic response (GR). The GR in coleoptiles is apparently regulated by the phytochrome system at the induction phase and involves calcium channels.
