It is shown that clinorotation affects the angle of Beta vulgaris L. root hair growth and changes it from 85–95° to 40–60° at the stage of hair initiation. Our investigations of actin cytoskeleton arrangement and tip-based gradient of calcium ions proved the involvement of above components in the maintenance of the directed growth in simulated microgravity (clinorotation).
