Abstract: 
We present some results of comparison studying of Brassica embryo development and the δ -cyclin genes expression under slow horizontal clinorotation and in the laboratory control. Some backlog of the δ1 -cyclin genes expression at early stages of embryogenesis under clinorotation was revealed in comparison with the laboratory control. The similar level of the δ3-cyclin expression at all stages of embryo formation (from one to nine days) in both variants is shown. Some delays in the rate of Brassica rapa embryo development under clinorotation in comparison with the laboratory control can be a result of decrease of a level and some backlog of the δ1 -cyclin expression at early stages of embryogenesis.
