Abstract

Kinetin, 6-furfurylaminopuime, has been found to promote cell division in plants, and has also been reported to increase the rate of division of animal cells. In previous studies of its effect on the rate of division of Paramecium caudatum, some workers have found a stimulatory effect, whereas others have found inhibition. The effect of low concentrations of kinetin (K) on the rate of division was tested for another ciliate, Blepharisma undulans. No significant stimulation of division was found. A significant inhibition of division was found after treatment with 0.5 ppm K and with 1.5 ppm K.
