  • THE purpose of the experiments to be described in this paper have been: (1) to continue studies on the mechanism of the antibiotic and toxic effects of certain quinone derivatives1; and (2) to extend earlier investigations2 and to study the so-called axial gradients in a quantitative way. Planaria gonocephala was chosen as a suitable model organism for both purposes. Eleven different quinone derivatives have been tested.
