Tetrahymena pyriformis shows differentiated responses to the effects of biogenic amines (histamine, serotonin), amino acid hormones (mono and diiodotyrosine, triiodothyronine and adrenalin), and the polypeptide insulin in the medium, resulting in changes in the degree of phagocytosis. Tetrahymena differentiates between biogenic amines of animal origin and a plant hormone (3 indolyl acetic acid). The latter was ineffective in these experiments.
