Abstract : The report summarizes a series of investigations into the role of phosphates and related compounds in cell division in the ciliated protozoon, Tetrahymena pyriformis. Included in the studies performed were an investigation of P-compounds in the cell cycle, similar studies in Acetabulria, studies of the free amino acid pools in several protozoons, studies on lipid metabolism in synchronized Tetrahymena, ultrastructural studies on growing and non-growing Tetrahymena, and an investigation of RNA metabolism in synchronized Tetrahymena. The details of these studies are included in the summary and have been reported in the literature. (Author)
