Sodium orthovanadate at 0.1-5.0 mM affected cell proliferation of Tetrahymena in a dose-dependent manner. At 1 h the cell increment was 76-12% of the control (100%), but after lag periods in 1-5 mM the growth rate remained at 76% of control in 0.1 mM vanadate and at 64-61% of control in 0.2-5.0 mM vanadate. Endocytosis was affected in both a time- and dose-dependent manner; an increasing number of cells did not form vacuoles. Cell motility increased initially in 0.1 mM vanadate but decreased… CONTINUE READING
