Somatic embryogenesis (SE) is a very useful system for studying the differentiation process in plants and involves gene regulation at several levels. During SE induction in Coffea arabica cv. Catura Rojo two types of cell clusters, embryogenic (EC) and non-embryogenic (NEC), were observed. The goal of this work was to compare the most relevant characteristics between EC and NEC for a better understanding of the mechanism driving SE. Morphohistological observations indicated a correlation between the morphological features of clusters and their embryogenic competence. On the other hand, no variation at the DNA level, studied by AFLP, were found to explain the disparity in embryogenic competence of clusters, but gene expression, observed by RNA differential display, and SDS-PAGE showed differences that can explain that disparity. Our results lead us to propose that differential gene expression can modulate the embryogenic; capacity of coffee cells and that the number of genes turned off in somatic cells to allow for the change from a somatic to an embryogenic state, is higher than those genes that are turned on.
