Abstract

SUMMARY: did not show the normal swelling and shrinking such as is undergone by in media of different osmotic pressures. shrank slightly in media below 0.33 osmolar and remained at constant volume between 0.33 and 3.4 osmolar, while swelled below 0.10 osmolar and shrank markedly and progressively from 0.33 to 3.4 osmolar. The resistance of to this effect is believed to be associated with its survival on the scalp in an environment low in water and high in salt from sweat, and to be a property of the remarkable construction of its cell wall as revealed by electron microscopy.
