In spite of the importance attained by somatic embryogenesis and of the many studies that have been conducted on this developmental process, there are still many aspects that are not fully understood. Among those features, the involvement of plant hormones and plant growth regulators on deTermining the conversion of somatic onto embryogenic tissues, and on allowing progression and maturation of somatic embryos, are far away from being completely comprehended. Part of these difficulties relies…

Genes and Trans -Factors Underlying Embryogenic Transition in Plant Soma-Cells

Both direct and indirect roles of genes and other trans-factors considered to be essential for the induction of plant somatic embryogenesis are highlighted and at times suggested for experimental validation.

Advances in Somatic Embryogenesis of Palm Trees (Arecaceae): Fundamentals and Review of Protocols

The present review discusses the main factors involved during somatic embryogenesis of palms and a significant number of protocols developed in recent years are compiled to provide readers about the current state of the art on the subject.

Regulation of Somatic Embryogenesis in Higher Plants

This review provides a systematic and comprehensive analysis of current advances in the development of somatic embryogenesis, as well as the cellular and molecular mechanism of somatics embryogenesis in higher plants.

Hormone-response mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh. impaired in somatic embryogenesis

The capacity for SE was studied in 27 mutants with defects in response to different plant hormones: auxin, ABA, gibberellin and cytokinin, and evaluated in 2-week-old mutant and wild-type cultures in terms of their efficiency and productivity.

Somatic Embryogenesis: A Valuable Strategy for Phyto-Climbing Diversity Conservation

The present chapter provides a review on somatic embryogenesis in various medicinal and ornamental climbers.

Development of embryogenic dogwood cultures and the regeneration of plants.

This is the first report of somatic embryo-derived plants of C. florida that have active shoot growth and that could be transferred to soil and established from IBA-treated cultures that could serve as a target for C.florida bioengineering.

Pretreatment free of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid improves the differentiation of sugarcane somatic embryos by affecting the hormonal balance and the accumulation of reserves

Abstract Several factors influence culture conditions and somatic embryogenesis responses, such as the role of plant growth regulators (PGRs) during the establishment of in vitro cultures. For



Regulation of in vitro somatic embryogenesis with emphasis on to the role of endogenous hormones

The article is centered on the effect that the endogenous hormone concentrations in the initial explants and in the tissue cultures derived from them could play in the induction and expression of somatic embryogenesis.

A review of the conditions influencing the induction of embryogenic potential in in vitro cultured plant cells and the problem of the genetic characteristics of regenerants, in terms of their chimerism and somaclonal variation, is discussed in some detail.

Transition of somatic plant cells to an embryogenic state

This review summarizes relevant experimental observations that can contribute to the description and definition of a transitional state of somatic cells induced to form totipotent, embryogenic cells.

Maturation of somatic embryos in conifers: Morphogenesis, physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology

Recent information dealing with the maturation of conifer somatic embryos is reviewed, showing the inclusions of abscisic acid and osmotic agents, such as polyethylene glycol, have been shown to be necessary for the functional development of somatic embryo development.

Molecular biology of somatic embryogenesis in conifers

A basic understanding of the biochemical and molecular processes that underlie the formation of somatic and zygotic embryos is essential to develop protocols for controlled embryogenesis and production of superior quality somatic embryos.

REVIEW ARTICLE Zygotic embryogenesis versus somatic embryogenesis

This review will summarize molecular and genetic analyses aimed at identifying the mechanisms underlying the sequence of events during plant zygotic embryogenesis. These events are being studied in

Somatic Embryogenesis in Leguminous Plants

It appears that, in legumes, somatic embryogenesis can be realized relatively easily especially in young meristematic tissues such as immature embryos and developing leaves, but more effort should be given to develop repetitive embryogenic systems with high frequency of germination and regeneration, since such systems will find immediate application in mass propagation and other crop improvement programmes.

Somatic embryogenesis from floral tissues of feijoa

First report of somatic embryogenesis in this species starting from somatic tissues is reported, with the development of globular somatic embryos on the surface of 18% of friable calluses previously induced with Picloram and Kin.

Mechanisms of somatic embryogenesis in cell cultures: Physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology

Good progress is being made in understanding the basic mechanisms of somatic embryogenesis, and a CEM 1 gene was found to encode a polypeptide showing high homology to the elongation factor isolated from eucaryotic cells.

Developmental pathways of somatic embryogenesis

It has long been observed that conditioned medium from embryogenic cultures can promote embryogenesis, and it is possible to make a model of the process through the construction of fate maps representing an adequate number of morphological and molecular markers.
