phyllome founder cell
- plant anatomy
- exact: phyllome anlagen cell
- A native plant cell (PO:0025606) that is part of the phyllome anlagen (PO:0025430). [source: PMID:12610522, POC:Laurel_Cooper]
- As a group, the phyllome founder cells encompass several layers of the shoot apical meristem (PO:0020148) and form a phyllome anlagen (PO:0025430). Founder cells do not function as stem cells but rather have a determinate fate and can be defined by histological, clonal and molecular criteria.
