Altered pattern of root growth as a result of defective directional cell expansion. Roots and etiolated hypocotyls are slightly shorter than normal and exhibit a counterclockwise (left-handed) axial rotation bias. Root growth on inclined hard agar surfaces is left skewed and looped away from the normal downward direction of growth. No visible shoot phenotype.
