Abstract

Chang liver cells and Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells were imprinted either with insulin or with thyrotropin (TSH). Chang liver cells responded to insulin but not to TSH. As an effect of imprinting evoked by insulin administration the binding of insulin administered for the second time was enhanced. In the mixed culture of imprinted and intact cells the extent of the binding was similar to that seen in the cultures of the cells having received imprintatory treatment alone. CHO cells also responded to TSH, imprinting developed and was transmitted to the cells which were not in interaction with the hormone (intact cells). In CHO cells also insulin gave rise to imprinting for insulin, whereas TSH gave rise to moderate binding imprinting for insulin. On the other hand, insulin imprinting did not enhance the binding of TSH. The obtained results indicate that both the imprinting itself and the specificity of the transmission of imprinting depend on the characteristics of the cell-type in question. The extent of the transmission, however, is always proportional to the extent of imprinting.
