Summary1.Existing evidence for the formation of morphological membranes at protoplasmic surfaces in the living plant protoplast is reviewed and judged inadequate.2.Cases from the literature and from the author's work are cited to show that micromanipulation may be employed in the investigation of this problem without perceptible disturbance of the normal condition of the protoplast.3.Investigation of plasmolyzed and unplasmolyzed protoplasts with the microneedle indicates:a)That there is an… 

Membranes in the plant cell

Summary1.Direct evidence for the existence of distinct osmotic membranes in the living plant protoplast has not hitherto been presented. The presence of a vacuole interferes with efforts to answer

The site of penetration resistance to water in plant protoplasts

The main purpose of this investigation was to determine the primary site of resistance to the penetration of water in the protoplasm of inner epidermal cells of the Allium cepa bulb scale, and it is shown that the mesoplasm is of no significant importance for water permeability, and that thePrimary site of penetration resistance to water is the plasmalemma.

This review describes the basic principles of electrophysiology using the generation of an action potential in characean internodal cells as a pedagogical tool and how the studies of electrical and chemical communication in physiology and development progressed in the botanical and zoological disciplines.

All the evidence points to the conclusion that the tonoplast of Allium cells is a thin, liquid film consisting of material which is not miscible with water, wesentlich unterscheidet and wahrscheinlieh lipoider Natur ist.

Effect of wall-degrading enzymes on protoplasts transaminase activity

Les enzymes employées pour l'obtention enzymatique des protoplastes de racines (Allium) altèrent les transaminases (EC. 2.6.1.1.) de protoplastes mécaniquement préparés. Cette inhibition

Damage by ozone to the mechanical integrity of the protoplast plasmalemma

Ozone acts on the plasmalemma as to weaken its mechanical properties. This results in the bursting of protoplasts.

The structural organization of plant protoplasm in the light of micrurgy

Micro-surgery of plant cells shows that the impression of fluidity which one gets from mere microscopic observation is illusory, and that the active film- and fibril-forming differentiation which Strasburger termed the “Kinoplasm” is always more or less elastic.

The Structure of Protoplasm and of Inorganic Gels: An Analogy

In all three cases the sudden liquefaction is brought on by mechanical disturbance, in protoplasm by pressure, and in the two inorganic gels by stirring or shaking, which tends to support the micellar hypothesis of the structure of gels.

The cytoplasm of the starfish eggs in the unfertilized, fertilized, and first and second cleavage stages is analyzed and the intranuclear pH of the immature Asterias egg is determined.

The experiments with the NH4Cl are similar to, and corroborate micro injection experiments performed in connection with some work on mustard gas in which the writer collaborated, and the semipermeability of a living cell appears primarily to be a function of its surface film.

The Protoplasmic pH of Living Cells.∗

The intra protoplasmic pH of Amoeba and of cells from different tissues of Necturus and the Frog was obtained by injecting with the micrurgical technique solutions of Clark and Lubs' indicator dyes.

The quiescence, rounding, sinking of the granules, and paling of the nucleus are similar to the effects seen after the injection of potassium and sodium chloride, and this suggests that there is a relation between the results of an increase in sodium ions and a decrease in calcium ions.

THE RELATIVE PERMEABILITY OF THE SURFACE AND INTERIOR PORTIONS OF THE CYTOPLASM OF ANIMAL AND PLANT CELLS

The permeability and osmotic properties of cells are explained on the assumption of the presence of surface and vacuolar plasmatic membranes which are of a semi-permeable or partially permeable

With a recently devised micro manipulator, the movements of micro needles under the highest magnifications of the microscope can be controlled to such an extent as to render possible an actual dissection of the chromosomes of a cell.

New material for microdissection

It should be borne in mind, however, that if general hypotheses on the physical properties of protoplasm are to be deduced, this is only possible if the investigator is familiar with animal as well as plant material.
