What Is Meant By Totipotency (in Relation To Plant Tisssues)
A (stem) cell has the potential to give rise to all cell lineages.
A demonstrated capability in plants where a single, isolated cell can develop into a whole plant.
In humans too, a fertilized egg is totipotent. As said, it is the capacity to differentiate into any type of tissue. Then there is also pluripotency (more restricted differentiation paths) and unipotency (just one differentiation path).
For those interested, just a few weeks ago I gave a presentation on stemcells/differentiation/reprogramming: http://home.student.uva.nl/monique.vandervoet/MV_regenerationSCs.ppt [Broken]
