BHK21 cells enucleated with cytochalasin B were trypsinized and replated. Subsequent spreading and shape formation were monitored with light and transmission electron microscopy. Assembly and changes in distribution of microtubules, microfilaments and 100 Å filaments were related to these processes. These results indicate that cytoplasm contains the information necessary for the normal assembly and distribution of cytoplasmic fibers.
