A long time elapsed after the discovery of cells before they came to be generally regarded as morphological units. As a first step it was necessary to show that the cell-walls of plants were double and that cells could therefore be separated. The earliest advances in this direction were made by Treviranus (1805) and Link (1807). The idea of a cell was very imperfect, however, so long as attention was concentrated on its wall. The first person who stated clearly that the cell-wall is not a… 

The evolution of 'the cell theory'.

The history of the cell theory can be used to show that progress can be based on incorrect but productive ideas and is one of the most important ideas in all of biology.

It is drawn on Lakoff and Johnson’s theory of “ontological metaphors” to show that the cell, primordial utricle, and protoplasm can be understood as material container, object, and substance, and that these overlapping distinctions help explain the chaotic and confusing early history of cell theory.

Once upon a time the cell membranes: 175 years of cell boundary research

This review will summarize the major historical discoveries and theories that tackled the existence and structure of membranes and will analyze how these theories impacted the understanding of the cell.

From protoplasmic theory to cellular systems biology: a 150-year reflection.

It is found that the "protoplasmic theory," not the "cell theory," was the key 19th-century construct that drove the study of the structure-and-function of living cells and set the course for the development of modern cell biology.

Mitosis and metabolic organization

This review is addressed to the problem of interpreting the nature of metabolic events associated with mitosis and the relationship between structural and metabolic changes that constitutes the substance of this communication.

It is argued that, by the end of the nineteenth century, the knowledge existed that should have encouraged interpretation of many embryonic events in terms of cell locomotion but did not do so, and in the history of other branches of development biology a similar reluctance to entertain the idea is discernible.

Viability of Plant Protoplasts

In the context of work with plant protoplasts, viability may be defined as the capacity of an isolated protoplast to continue to grow in culture, to replace its lost cell wall and to form either

" The Cell-Theory " ( 1853 ) , by

Huxley influenced future scientists about the role of epigenetic processes in embryology and development, for which properties of life emerge from the outer cytoplasm, cell membrane, and wall (the periplast), as opposed to the inner contents of the cell, including the nucleus (the endoplast).
