Subramanyam, S and Subramaniam, MK (1970) Some observations on the behaviour of colchicine-treated cells during recovery in Allium CEPA. In: Proceedings of the Indian Academy of Sciences - Section B, 72 (3). pp. 115-119.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The accidental discovery of a cell with haploid number of diplochromosomes in squashes of colchicine-treated root tips led to a search for haploid anaphases in treated roots allowed to recover in water. No haploid anaphases were seen. Apart from the divisional stages of diploid and tetraploid nuclei, cells with two pro-, meta- and ana-phases were observed. The formation of distinct cell boundaries by each nucleus of an originally multinucleate cell indicates their potentialities in this direction.
