Embryogenesis in callus derived from rice microspores

Abstract

Differentiating calli derived from rice (Oryza sativa L.) microspores were examined histologically. Shoot and root meristems were observed to be arising by both organogenesis as well as embryogenesis. Embryoid attachment to callus (as well as other embryoids) was at the scutellum adjacent to the mesocotyl and radicle. These observations could be interpreted as an indication of the totipotent plasticity of that tissue.
