Endoreduplication is a common process in plants that allows cells to increase their DNA content. In the tobacco cell cultures studied in this work it can be induced by simple hormone deprivation. Mesophyll protoplast-derived cells cultured in the presence of NAA (auxin) and BAP (cytokinin) keep on dividing, while elongation and concomitant DNA endoreduplication are induced and maintained in a medium containing only NAA. If aphidicolin is given to the two types of culture, no effect is observed… CONTINUE READING
