1. 1. The Anemonia sulcata toxin ATX II is cardiotoxic and neurotoxic, and-at a high dose level-even lethal for the mouse, neurotoxic, but non-lethal for the frog, and has no adverse influence whatever on the Planaria and Tetrahymena; it even stimulates the growth of the Tetrahymena at a low dose level. 2. 2. It also induces imprinting in the Tetrahymena, as judged from the altered response of the latter to ATX II on re-exposure. 3. 3. No similar imprinting effect was demonstrable in mice.
