Plant Stem Cells

Plant stem cells are innately undifferentiated cells located in the meristems of the plant. They serve as the origin of plant vitality, as they maintain themselves while providing a steady supply of precursor cells to form differentiated tissues and organs in the plant. Plant cells are cultured to acquire plant useful compounds. However, cell cultures are often hindered by various factors especially if cell culture continues long-term.  Thus plant stem cell culture is the most ideal and productive method of cell culture and phytochemical production as cells are successfully mass cultured while maintaining quality.
