Biologists Find Stem Cell-Like Functions in Other Types of Plant Cells


Ordinary cells have the ability to replace lost organs in plants-a function previously thought to be limited to stem cells-researchers at NYU s Center for Genomics and Systems Biology and Utrecht University in the Netherlands have found. The findings, which suggest that some roles of stem cells in organ regeneration may be shared by other types of cells, are published in the latest issue of the journal Nature.
