Unformatted text preview: 4) Inquiry 3 – Figure 4 a) Leo Galweiler and colleagues proved that the auxin transporters move the hormone out of the basal end of one cell, and into the apical end of neighboring cells; this polar movement of auxin was proved by dying the plants 5) The Acid Growth Hypothesis – Figure 5 a) Auxin stimulates the proton pumps and the cell wall therefore becomes acidic b) This low pH separates cellulose microfibrils from cross-linking polysaccharides c) This exposed cross-linking polysaccharides are now more accessible to the cell wall-loosening enzymes by the enzymes d) These cross-linking polysaccharides microfibrils are allowed to slide to each other. The turgor causes the cell to expand since the cellulose is loosened. <Figure 1> - Molecular Structure of Auxin <Figure 2> - Inquiry 1 <Figure 3> -Inquiry 2 <Figure 4> - Inquiry 3 <Figure 5> - Acid-Growth Hypothesis...
