Tetrahymena subjected to a three-day exposure to the steroid triamcinolone exhibited a decreased microsomal enzyme activity, three days after treatment, followed by a slight and a considerable activity increase over the control at one and two weeks after treatment, respectively. Reexposure to triamicinolone after return to plain medium for three days accounted for a marked increase in the inducer action which, however, failed to persist for an appreciable time.
