An investigation was carried out on ability of Ypenyl,i.e. 5-bis-(2-chloroethyl)-aminomethyluracil to induce structural disturbances of chromosomes and changes of mitotic activity of meristematic cells ofVicia faba. The cytostatic employed induced chromosomal aberrations mostly of the chromatide type, the greater part of which were localized in the group of small chromosomes. The frequency of aberrations was proportional to the concentration of the substance used as well as to the duration of… Expand
