Effects of microgravity and hypergravity on early development stages of Xeonopus laevis

, : Effects of microgravity and hypergravity on early development stages of Xeonopus laevis. Journal of Gravitational Physiology 9(1): P207-P208

The aim of this work is to evaluate the development of X.l. in modified gravity conditions. The simulation of hyper and microgravity was performed utilizing: an hyperfuge, a Clinostat and later on a Random Positioning Machine (RPM, 3d Clinostat). The effect of hypergravity on embryos is significantly higher than that of microgravity; the exposure of embryos to 3xg for 3 days before and after hatch causes an activation of HSP-60 and HSP-70. Embryos exposed to 3xg during the first 3 days of development are very sensitive and show a retard of development, with a lower content of DNA, neutral glycolipids and gangliosides compared to controls.

Abscission is a cell separation process by which plants can shed organs such as fruits, leaves, or flowers. The process takes place in specific locations termed abscission zones. In fruit crops like citrus, fruit abscission represents a high perce...
