The heat output of and the effect of manganese (II) on Tetrahymena shanghaiensis S(1)99 growth metabolism has been determined by means of a LKB-2277 BioActivity monitor. Different concentrations of manganese(II) ions have different effects on the growth of T. shanghaiensis. At low concentrations (0-40 mug/mL) culture growth is promoted, whereas high concentrations (60-800 mug/mL) slow growth. Furthermore, concentrations of 1200 mug/mL or greater stop the growth of this protozooa completely.
