Cyclopentyl 2,7,7-trimethyl-5-oxo-4-(4-pyridinyl)-1,4,5,6,7,8-hexahydro-3- quinolinecarboxylate and similar compounds are potentiators of auxin-induced somatic embryogenesis in plants. In particular, the inventors have discovered certain of these compounds induce somatic embryogenesis in Arabidopsis in the presence of 2,4-D. Also tested is BAY K 8644. Methods of inducing somatic embryogenesis comprise exposing selected plant tissues, e.g. seed embryos, to auxins, e.g. 2.4-D and the compounds.
