Protein and RNA inhibitors and protozoan habituation


A variety of protein and RNA inhibitors were tested on habituation learning in the protozoan Spirostomum. Inhibition of protein synthesis up to values of 95% had no effect upon habituation, and RNA inhibition up to 89% by 5-fluorouracil had only slight effects upon it. Large amounts of protein and RNA synthesis are not necessary for habituation.
