Cell Differentiation

Cell differentiation is a complicated process that involves turning on some specific genes and turning off other genes to produce specific plant tissue.

Plants have about a dozen basic cell types that are required for everyday functioning and survival. Additional cell types are required for sexual reproduction. While the basic diversity of plant cell types is low compared to animals, these cells are strikingly different. Some cells retain the potential to respond to environmental and/or hormonal signals throughout their life and, under the right conditions, can be transformed into another cell type. Other cells such as water-conducting vessel elements undergo cell death as part of their differentiation pathway and thus can never transdifferentiate to another cell type.

Stoller products aid a plant’s ability to generate new cells, direct food movement to new cells, stimulate growth and increase grain or fruit quality.
