What is Auxin?
Auxin is a plant hormone that controls the growth near the tips of shoots and roots.
10 of 30
What does in control in the plants response to light,gravity and moisture?
It controls the growth of the plant in response to light (phototropism),gravity (gravitropism) and moisture
11 of 30
Shoots grow towards light. Explain.
When a shoot tip is exposed to light, more auxin accumulates on the side that's in the shade than the side that's in the light. This makes the cells grow (elongate) faster on the side so the shoot bends towards light.
12 of 30
Shoots grow away from gravity. Explain.
When a shoot is growing sideways, gravity produces an unequal distribution of auxin in the tip with more auxin on the lower side.This causes the shoot to grow faster on the bottom so it grows upwards.
13 of 30
Roots grow towards gravity. Explain.
A root growing sideways will also have more auxin on the lower side. But in a root the extra auxin inhibits growth. This means the top will elongate faster and the roots bend downwards.
14 of 30
Roots grow towards moisture. Explain.
An uneven amount of moisture either side of a root produces more auxin on the side with more moisture. This inhibits growth on that side causing the root to bend in that direction, towards the moisture.

How are medicinal drugs tested?
They are firstly tested on human cells and tissues in the lab. The next step is to test on live animals to see if it works or not. The next step would to test on human volunteers. First of healthy volunteers and then on people that have it.
