Cellular Division and Cellular Volume Distribution in the Presence of 2-Phenyl-ethanol and some of its Derivatives

Naturevolume 212page298 (1966) | Download Citation



AGENTS that inhibit DNA synthesis in cells of higher animals are comparatively rare. Following on our earlier work1, we have tested mouse lymphoma cells in order to determine the rate of division and change in volume brought about by the presence of various concentrations of 2-phenyl-ethanol (PEA) and some of its derivatives.
