    Autoradiographs of mature cotton bolls which earlier had radioglucose introduced via a thin incision into their peduncles show a marked asymmetry in distribution of the label. Radio-assay shows the specific activity of the cotton fibres on the treated side to be as much as 30-fold that on the opposite side.
