Question

The tip of a plant is used for tissue culture as it is:


  1. easily accessible and can be cut easily

  2. rich in dead cells

  3. rich in undifferentiated cell mass

  4. rich in sclerenchyma cells


Solution

The correct option is C

rich in undifferentiated cell mass


Tips of plants are generally used for tissue culture as they are rich in a group of undifferentiated cells that are capable of rapid division. These cells divide when transferred to a nutrient medium to give rise to an unorganised mass of cells called the callus.
They do not posses sclerenchyma cells as they are dead cells that do not divide.
