Aqueous solutions of alcohol-acetic acid-formalin or glutaraldehyde-acrolein were shaken with heptane and heptane phase used for fixation. Phase-partition fixation is akin to fixation with vapor. The organic solvent, immiscible with water, penetrates hydrophobic membranes and carries the fixative in contact with water phase of the tissue. Only the fixative(More)
Vital staining of mitochondria with a fluorescent dye 3,3'-diethyloxacarbocyanine was used to follow cell lineage in embryos of Phallusia mammillata. The results agree in general with the plan established by Conklin in 1905. Strong fluorescence migrated after fertilization similarly to the pigment of the "yellow crescent" in Styela. Later, fluorescence(More)
Live sporangiophores of Phycomyces blakesleeanus were centrifuged at 35,000 rpm. The cell contents sedimented into distinct layers, and each layer was studied with an electron microscope and with cytochemical methods. The following layers were found (their volumes and their densities are shown in Fig. 3): 1. polyphosphates; 2. polyphosphates and protein(More)

The early development ofPhallusia mammillata eggs, dechorionated with trypsin and treated with Concanavalin A, was studied. Vital staining with a very dilute solution of acridine orange (0.01 μg/ml) helped to visualize the mitochondrial ‘crescent’ by fluorescence. At high concentrations of Concanavalin A (20–200 μg/ml) fertilized eggs did not cleave, but(More)
