When 2, 4-dinitrophenol (DNP) or 3, 5-dinitro-o-cresol (DNC) in suitable concentrations are added to isolated embryos of the grasshopper, Melanoplus differentialis, an immediate increase in the oxygen uptake of the embryos is noted. Respiration of either blocked or developing embryos in the presence of the nitrophenol varies between 200 and 300 per cent of the normal and may continue at a uniform rate for several hours.
