archegonium central cell
- plant anatomy
- exact: 造卵器中央細胞 (Japanese)
- A native plant cell (PO:0025606) that is the larger, distal cell arising from the first division of an archegonium initial cell (PO:0025510). [source: PMID:17041880, POC:Laurel_Cooper]
- The archegonium central cell divides asymmetrically to form a smaller ventral canal cell (PO:0025524) and a larger archegonium egg cell (PO:0025122). It is larger than the archegonium neck canal cell (PO:0030065), which also develops from the archegonium initial cell (PO:0025510). The archegonium central cell only occurs in gymnosperms.
