Definition of daughter cell in English:
A cell formed by the division or budding of another.
- These stem cells divide asymmetrically to form a new germline stem cell and a differentiated daughter cell, the cystoblast (cb).
- In one type of strategy the stem cell divides asymmetrically, so that one daughter remains a stem cell while the other daughter cell undergoes cell differentiation.
- The initial asymmetric division orientates the smaller daughter cell towards the apex of the leaf causing a uniform pattern of complexes to emerge, giving rise to the files of stomata typical of monocotyledonous leaves.
