As learnt 

Both apical and axillary meristems are free of virus for the healthy plant cultivation because of strong interferon activity in this region. These tissue form a protective impermeable covering around themselves, which s non-penetrable by any pathogen. Hence, these tissue are used in the production of disease-free plants by tissue culture.
