We previously found that flowering of Arabidopsis was suppressed by near-null magnetic field, which was related to cryptochrome. Auxin plays an important role in Arabidopsis flowering. To test whether auxin is involved in the suppression of Arabidopsis flowering by near-null magnetic field, we detected auxin level and expressions of auxin transport and signaling genes in wild-type Arabidopsis plants and cryptochrome double mutant, cry1/cry2, grown in near-null magnetic field.
