Abstract

The purpose of this investigation was (1) to compute the effects of strontium ion antagonism and the observed biological effect of the strontium ion for anestesia of Paramecium caudatum with the nickel ion, (2) to compare the prolonged effect of the strontium ion antagonism for nickel ions upon the vitality of P. caudatum for control groups using the fission rate as an index of vitality. The experimental data showed a biological antagonism of the strontium ions for the nickel ions in anesthetization of P. caudatum. Further, the vitality study showed that the presence of strontium ions reduced the inhibitory effect of nickel ions for fission of P. caudatum.
