1. 1. Comparative studies on binding of rabbit serum (IgG) antibodies against intact and insulin-pretreated Tetrahymena cells revealed an increased binding affinity of the latter to rat hepatocellular insulin receptors. 2. 2. The experiments demonstrate that presence of insulin is a prerequisite to the formation of Tetrahymena's hormone receptors, which seems to differ little if at all between species representing different levels of phylogenesis.
