Abstract

Both histamine and 5 hydroxytryptamine enhance the phagocytotic activity of Tetrahymena, whereas indoleacetic acid has no such effect. As histamine increases the phagocytotic capability of cells also in metazoal organisms, the response could be considered specific for animal cells. The different behavior of the chemically similar 5 hydroxytryptamine and the indoleacetic acid indicate receptors for each of the reactive hormones in Tetrahymena.
