Bovine serum albumin (BSA) enhances the division of Tetrahymena and leaves negative imprinting. In consequence, a repeated meeting with BSA 1, 2, or 3 weeks after the first one is followed by a significantly reduced division rate of Tetrahymena cells. The imprinting is fairly specific for BSA; the division rate was not influenced significantly by either human serum albumin or an anti-rabbit sheep immunoglobulin.
