Meristematic tissue

meristematic tissue Embryonic tissue located at the tips of stems and roots and occasionally along their entire length; can divide to produce new cells; one of the four main tissue systems in plants. PICTURE
mesentary Epithelial cells supporting the digestive organs.

meristematic tissue the growth tissue; the location of most cell division of vascular plants.
mesoderm one of three germ layers that develops to become the muscles and other internal organs.

Meristematic tissue is located in
the apical meristems at the growing points of roots and stems.
the secondary meristems (lateral buds) at the nodes of stems (where branching occurs) [View], and in some plants, ...

Meristematic tissue continues to rapidly divide producing undifferentiated cells which may eventually differentiate to form the tissue and cell types discussed above
Plants do not have a pre-programmed body plan ...

meristematic tissue Within some seaweeds, specific tissue sites where most cell division for growth occurs.
meroblastic Partial cleavage occurring in zygotes having a large amount of yolk at the vegetal pole; cleavage restricted to a small area on the surface of the egg.

Meristematic tissues with dividing undifferentiated cells can sustain or renew growth indefinitely.
Parenchyma cells throughout the plant can divide and differentiate into various types of specialized cells.
Detached fragments of some plants can develop into whole offspring.

Plants have meristematic tissue in several locations. Both roots and shoots have meristematic tissue at their tips called apical meristems that are responsible for the lengthening of roots and shoots.

This type of transcription factor is associated with dividing meristematic tissue and might be a first lead into effector-triggered endo-reduplication in barley epidermis as recently suggested in a susceptible A. thaliana-powdery mildew interaction [64],[65].

Fibres stem usually form meristematic tissues. Cambium and procambium are their main centers of production. They are often associated with the xylem of the vascular bundles. The fibres of the xylem are always lignified. Reliable evidence for the fibre cells' evolutionary origin of tracheids exists.

A cylinder of meristematic tissue in plants that produces cork cells to replace the epidermis during secondary growth.

Petals, collectively; usually the conspicuously colored flower parts.
