Brassinosteroids (BRs) are steroidal phytohormones that are essential for many processes in plant growth and development, such as cell expansion, vascular differentiation, and responses to stress. The effects of BRs on cell division are unclear, as attested by contradictory published results. To determine the effect of BRs on cell division, the tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) BY-2 cell line, which is a widely-used model system in plant cell biology, was used. It was found that brassinolide (BL… CONTINUE READING
