Abstract

1. By centrifuging, the fibers or components of the half-spindle are bent and distorted, not only as a group but also independently of each other. 2. Metaphases so treated continue their mitotic activities and it is concluded that the half-spindle components as seen in fixed preparations are not coagulation artefacts but have a morphological basis in the living spindle. 3. The experiments lend further support to the claim that half-spindle components and interzonal connections differ from each other in structure and certain other physical properties.
