The mechanisms by which mononucleated giant erythropoietic cells are formed in vitro under the action of X-irradiation have been studied by phase-contrast. Though concomitant interkinetic cell growth without division was not investigated, the authors demonstrated that erythropoietic cells with higher than normal dimensions may be formed by mitotic block in prophase, metaphase and anaphase, with subsequent reconstitution of a single nucleus.
