A stimulation of the rate of division of Paramecium caudatum by kinetin has been reported. This paper reports investigations in which kinetin was found to be inhibitory, rather than stimulatory, to division of paramecia under similar conditions and at the same concentrations. Addition of IAA apparently counteracted the inhibition produced by kinetin.
