Biological effects of cytochalasin H (CH), a newly isolated mould metabolite, have been found to bring about disaggregation of embryonic cells and to inhibit cytokinesis. Disaggregation is known to be a phenomenon related to the cell surface. (The cells are held together by a mucopolysaccharide glycoprotein complex.) In the present work the fact that the(More)
Cytochalasin H (CH) brought about cellular disaggregation resulting into arrest of development in the embryos of the frog, Microhyla ornata. The effects were dependent on the dose of CH, duration of the treatment as well as on developmental stage of the embryo at the beginning of the treatment. The embryos were protected to some extent if the vitelline(More)
