Apogee variety wheat plants inoculated by wheat streak mosaic virus isolated by us displayed the reduction of viral reproduction under simulated microgravity conditions. We employed the laser Mueller-polarimetry method for the first time to study simulated microgravity effects on healthy and infected by the wheat streak mosaic virus wheat plants. Our results are indicative of the possibility to apply the laser Mueller-polarimetry procedure to the investigation of structural and functional changes in wheat leaves caused by virus infection and clinorotation.
