Tobacco BY-2 cells

Tobacco BY-2 cells is a cell line of plant cells, which was established from a callus induced on a seedling of Nicotiana tabacum cv. BY-2 (cultivar Bright Yellow - 2 of the tobacco plant).


Tobacco BY-2 cells are nongreen, fast growing model organism.

They are used as model systems for differentiation.
