Certain non-hormone oligopeptides have a greater imprinting effect on Tetrahymena than others. The imprinting potential is unrelated to the length of the peptide chain, but seems greatly dependent on the amino acid sequence. The direct growth-stimulant action developed by the peptides at the first interaction is unrelated to their imprinting effect.
