Abstract

Starch-containing parenchyma cells of young potato tubers (var. Irish Cobbler) divide without noticeable digestion of the starch grains. These cells have large vacuoles and small nuclei, and contain numerous starch grains, some of which are as large as the nuclei. The starch grains seem to offer no serious mechanical obstruction to the peripheral expansion of the phragmoplast during cytokinesis
