Tobacco by-2 cells: The present and beyond

  title={Tobacco by-2 cells: The present and beyond},
  author={Toshiyuki Nagata and Kenichi Sakamoto and Takashi Shimizu},
  journal={In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology - Plant},
Among the established plant cell lines, tobacco BY-2 cell line is unique, as it can be highly synchronized by established procedures. Because of this reason, the cell line has become invaluable for various studies, particularly on cell cycle issues. The importance of several characteristics of the cell line, some of which have not been handled thus far, is described in this article. We also include some preliminary characterization of an auxin-autotrophic cell line 2B-13 derived from the BY-2… CONTINUE READING
