Cultured cells of tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) BY-2 which could propagate at the same rate as the parent cells (1 mg B liter−1) under a lower level of boron (0.01 mg B liter−1) were obtained. The selected cells had swollen cell walls. In the parent cells, all the RG-II occurred as a BRG-II complex, however, two-thirds of the RG-II occurred in a monomeric form in the selected cells.
