Hormonal communication of tetrahymena

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The unicellular ciliate Tetrahymena has an almost complete hormonal system, similar to mammals. It produces, stores and secretes amino acid and polypeptide type hormones and does not synthesize steroid hormones. It has receptors for these hormones and also mammalian-like transducing systems. Using these factors it is able to send messages inside the population and deciphering them it can react to the hormones. The specificity of the response is high, however less than that is in mammals. The pros and cons of the abundant experimental data are discussed pointing to their evolutionary importance.
