Totipotency and pluripotency are concepts currently used to explain the ability of
stem cells to produce the diverse differentiated cell types during multicellular
development of plants and animals. While totipotent or pluripotent stem cells are well
described in plants, the molecular, physical and cellular processes that occur prior to and
leading up to the formation of stem cells are less understood. As in the animal kingdom,
plant totipotent stem cells include the single-celled zygote that establishes the bipolar
multicellular body. In contrast to animals, totipotent plant stem cells can also originate
from certain differentiated somatic cells. In this chapter, we provide evidence to support
the hypothesis that in vitro induced plant cell dedifferentiation occurs in specific somatic
cells called competent cells usually located near vascular tissues. These competent cells
are able to reach the stem cell-like status under in vitro appropriate conditions. In this
context, both cellular and molecular components are greatly modified during the cell
reactivation stage and also during commitment towards the specific morphogenetic
pathway. Physiological determinants, typically associated with stress, related to the in
vitro induced acquisition and expression of toti- or pluripotency are described in this
chapter. A practical perspective is given to optimize the toti- or pluripotency expression
during in vitro plant regeneration. Finally, the putative role of neighbor cells surrounding
localised competent cells in the tissue, and stem cell-like lineage are discussed.
