Asked by ms27091999 | 19th Aug, 2016, 12:35: PM
Totipotency is the ability of a cell to divide and differentiate into a complete body. In plants, the meristematic cells divide continuously and give rise new cells of the plant body. At maturity, the meristematic cells are fully developed and functional and develop the capacity of totipotency. This implies that when they provided with all the necessary conditions of temperature, humidity and nutrients at any stage of life, they can grow and develop into new plant tissue. These totipotent cells are used in plant tissue culture to generate a new plant from an explant.
