SummaryAn important development in the field of plant cell and tissue culture has been the demonstration in the past decade of the totipotency of higher plant cells. Isolated single cells were first successfully grown on a nurse tissue separated by a filter paper and gave rise to a callus tissue. Later, completely isolated single cells of tobacco were grown in microchambers to form small clumps of cells which then could be differentiated to form adult tobacco plants. Indirect evidence of the… 
Plant tissue culture media
TLDR
The development of the various types of tissue culture has been based on empirical approaches, and some of the observations recorded in the literature may not be typical for plant cells.
PLANT TISSUE CULTURE MEDIA1
TLDR
Some guidelines and suggestions on various aspects of plant tissue culture media are presented and some of the observations recorded in the literature may not be typical for plant cells.
Regeneration of tobacco and petunia plants from protoplasts an culture of corn protoplasts
TLDR
Auxins and cytokinins were essential for the differentiation, of shoots from protoplast-derived callus tissues of petunia and tobacco, and transfer of individual shoots to simpler nutrient media resulted in the formation of adventitious roots.
PART 3 VEGETATIVE PROPAGATION BY TISSUE AND ORGAN CULTURE VEGETATIVE PROPAGATION: TISSUE AND ORGAN CULTURE AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO ROOTING CUTTINGS
Rooting cuttings is often difficult, and alternative methods of vegetative propagation should be considered. A number of herbaceous plants have been propagated effectively using various techniques of
An efficient protocol for stimulating cell development in protoplast culture of Scaevola
  • Y. Wang
  • Biology
    Plant Growth Regulation
  • 2010
TLDR
This protoplast culture system can be utilized as an experimental platform for the study of embryogenic differentiation of cells and may open new vistas to investigate the seed development at molecular and cellular levels in Scaevola and related Australian native plants that are well known for their low seed viability and germination.
The Stem Cell State in Plant Development and in Response to Stress
TLDR
The stem cell state in plants with reference to animals and the plastic nature of plant somatic cells often referred to as totipotency as well as the essence of cellular dedifferentiation are highlighted.
Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture: The Most Flexible Foundations for Plant Metabolic Engineering Applications
  • S. Ogita
  • Biology, Medicine
    Natural product communications
  • 2015
TLDR
The advantages and the limitations of these methodologies, especially regarding the production of bioactive plant secondary metabolites and metabolic engineering in target plants are discussed mainly from the phenotypic view point.
Impact of Plant Tissue Culture on Agricultural Sustainability
Plant tissue culture is an important agricultural biotechnological tool that contributes in the production of crops with improved food, fiber, fuel, and feed. It is one way toward commercialization
Regeneration and plastid transformation approaches in Arabidopsis thaliana and Rapid-Cycling Brassica rapa
Plastid transformation is a well-established tool for biotechnology as it allows highexpression levels of proteins and as it provides biological transgene containment because of maternal inheritance
Soybean androgenesis II: non-gametophytic morphologies in isolated microspore culture
Gametophytic embryogenesis is a process capable of accelerating trait discovery and cultivar development in plant-breeding programs. However, recalcitrance to morphogenic stimuli has limited such

Growth of Single Cells from Higher Plants on Synthetic Media
TLDR
Because almost nothing is known about the active principle or principles of coconut milk and since at least with certain tissues the appearance of polyploid cells is furthered by coconut milk, experiments were undertaken with the view of growing single cells on chemically defined, synthetic media.
Further studies on the growth and differentiation of single, isolated cells of tobacco in vitro
TLDR
Single cells of hybrid tobacco callus, isolated from germinating seeds, were grown individually in microchambers in the absence of any other cells, in fresh, liquid, coconut milk-medium to offer the possibility of producing a very large number of clones or identical plants in species where vegetative propagation is not otherwise possible.
Morphogenesis in cell colonies grown from Convolvulus cell suspensions plated on synthetic media.
TLDR
The value of the combined techniques of cell suspension culture and cell plating for the study of the physical and chemical factors influencing cell differentiation and organized development are pointed out.
THE PREPARATION, ISOLATION, AND GROWTH IN CULTURE OF SINGLE CELLS FROM HIGHER PLANTS
TLDR
The present paper explains how information was secured and how successful methods were developed for the isolation and subsequent growth of single cells and whether they showed morphological or physiological differences that would make them useful research materials.
GROWTH AND ORGANIZED DEVELOPMENT OF CULTURED CELLS. V. THE GROWTH OF COLONIES FROM FREE CELLS ON NUTRIENT AGAR
TLDR
The induction of growth in free cells is enhanced, even in an environment nutritionally optimal for the growth of the larger cell masses, by as yet unknown factors which are contributed by the cells themselves, or by adjacent cells or groups of cells.
Differentiation of Tobacco Plants from Single, Isolated Cells in Microcultures
TLDR
Single cells isolated from pith callus of fresh stem of hybrid tobacco gave rise to small colonies of cells in microcultures which upon transfer to agar medium produced clones of callus tissue, differentiated roots, and shoots with green leaves, on a completely defined nutrient medium.
Plant cell and tissue cultures: The role of Haberlandt
The aseptic culture of plant cells and tissues as technique is now well established. Successful development of tissue culture2 was necessitated by a phY1iiological problem which clearly demanded for
Plant Cell and Tissue Cultures: The Role of Haberlandt
TLDR
The aseptic culture of plant cells and tissues as technique is now well established and the botanist Gottlieb Haberlandt foresaw the use of cell culture as an elegant means of studying physiological and morphological problems.
POTENTIALLY UNLIMITED GROWTH OF EXCISED PLANT CALLUS IN AN ARTIFICIAL NUTRIENT
TLDR
Gautheret has grown cambium cultures for more than a year, through five or six passages, thus furnishing evidence of a possible capacity for unlimited growth, and it seems probable that he has fulfilled both requirements and is to be credited with the first true plant tissue cultures.
Growth and Tissue Formation from Single, Isolated Tobacco Cells in Microculture
TLDR
Single, isolated cells of tobacco divided and grew to form small colonies of over 50 cells in microcultures with a medium containing fresh liquid coconut milk, but in the absence of neighboring cells or nurse tissue established itself as a clone of callus tissue.
