OBP4 regulates cell proliferation-and-differentiation balance and pluripotent cell formation

The group led by Dr. Juan Carlos del Pozo has found that the transcription factor OBP4 activates cell proliferation in differentiated pericycle cells. This activation promotes the formation of callus, a mass of proliferative cells in an undifferentiated state. This callus mass has the potential to regenerate functional organs or entire plant under determinate conditions.
