Abstract

The phagocytotic activity of frog macrophage cells could be increased by 50% with histamine and by 24% with serotonin. These hormones have a similar effect at the various stages of phylogenetic development, to judge from the respective responses of the unicellular Tetrahymena which showed approximately the same percentage increases of phagocytosis as frog macrophages at approximately the same hormone concentrations. It is concluded that cytoplasmic membrane receptor patterns for a given function do not change in the course of phylogenetic development and the receptors have a capacity for selection, preferring histamine to serotonin, and serotonin to the chemically closely related plant hormone indoleacetic acid.
