Plant primary meristems: shared functions and regulatory mechanisms.

Abstract

Primary plant meristems are the shoot and root meristems that are initiated at opposite poles of the plant embryo. They contain stem cells, which remain undifferentiated, and supply new cells for growth and the formation of tissues. The maintenance of a long-lasting stem cell population in meristems is achieved by signal exchange between organizing regions… (More)
