Concept of cellular totipotency was established by (1) White (2) Haberlandt (3) Steward (4) Muir

Answer: (2)

Cellular totipotency is the potential of a single cell to generate all types of cells and to assemble them into a whole organism when cultured at sufficient temperature and aeration conditions in a suitable culture medium.

Examples: Zygote and Spores.

In 1902, a German Botanist, Professor Gottlieb Haberlandt, proposed the idea of Totipotency. He said that every living cell of the plant body can regenerate the entire plant body because it is obtained from the fertilized egg and contains genetic data.
