Abstract

Histamine antagonists enhance the phagocytotic activity of Tetrahymena pyriformis to the same extent as histamine itself. With serotonin antagonists this activity is also increased, and the serotonin effect is inhibited, depending on the degree of differences in the side groups of the indole ring. It is suggested that there is a selective receptor mechanism operating for serotonin which is present in Tetrahymena but a mechanism does not seem to exist that distinguishes histamine, which is found only in higher animals, from its antagonists.
