I. Fibroblasts from the heart of fetal mice, 19-22 days, were grown in Carrel flasks (D 3.5) or on cover glasses and exposed to various cones, of sex hormones. Estrin 10-7 gave a slightly higher mitotic and greater area gain than greater or less concs. or than the control. Greater concs. inhibited growth. Testosterone and progestin 10-4 to 10-7 inhibited growth. II. Fibroblasts from the heart of fetal mice, 19-22 days, exposed in tissue cul ture to thyroxin 10-7 to 10-9 showed more rapid gain in area and more frequent mitoses than controls. Insulin, 1 unit per cc, proved to be even more effective in promoting growth. Adrenaline, 10-4 to 10-7, and cortin, 10-1 to 10-7, inhibited growth as compared to controls.
