Heavy overdoses of Ceresan induces the formation of giant cells in seedlings of corn and small grains. Cell division is inhibited. Nuclear division occurs, with more or less normal prophases. Anaphase separation of halves of split chromosomes fails to take place, accompanied by apparent failure of the sprindle mechanism. Cell wall formation may he initiated, but the evidence suggests subsequent dissolution of partial cell walls.
