Abstract

The acellular slime mold Physarum polycephalum is discussed to be an ideal model organism to study graviperception and the regulation of gravitaxis in single cells.Since a specialized gravi-receptor has not yet been found in Physarum it is interesting to observe that the organism performs a clear g-oriented locomotion. Gravitaxis in Physarum seems to be an actively regulated process, for the sign of the gravitaxis can be altered by varying external conditions.
