Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to answer the question of whether going down is equivalent to unibranchedness of prime ideals in integral extensions of prime $ {\text{PI}}$ rings. We show by example that, in general, the answer is no; and we find an additional condition which, together with going down, implies prime ideals of $ {\text{ht}} > 1$ are unibranched.
