Mitogenetic analysis of the protein substrate of protoplasm
It has been shown, by means of mitogenetic spectrum analysis that during the proliferative stage of cells (yeast, newt larvae, newborn guinea pigs), and in proliferating tissues of adult animals (guinea pig labial epithelium, rabbit cornea) there is relatively little interlinking of cytoplasmic peptide chains. This is shown by the relative narrowness of the spectral bands due to the functional groups R−C=O and R−C6H4OH. Where active proliferation has ceased, the peptide chains are interlinked by weak molecular bonds, giving rise to two-and three-dimensional structures.
The mitotic process thus involves profound and co-ordinated reconstruction of all cell components.
