Microsomal cytochrome b560ms of the unicellular organism Tetrahymena was studied after triamcinolone treatment. One day of treatment decreased the enzyme concentration (nmol/mg protein); however, exposure for 2 or 3 days enhanced it. Three days of exposure increased the total protein content without further increase of microsomal enzyme concentration. The experiments demonstrate the possibility of microsomal enzyme inhibition and induction in Tetrahymena.
