  • Entamoeba Clone-Recognition Experiments: Morphometrics, Aggregative Behavior, and Cell-Signaling Characterization

    Entamoeba Clone‐Recognition Experiments: Morphometrics, Aggregative Behavior, and Cell‐Signaling Characterization

    Clone-aggregation preference shown by Entamoeba invadens IP-1 and E. invadens VK-1:NS in mixed- (top) or single-cell-line (bottom) cultures. A. Fluorescent micrograph of E. invadens IP-1 labeled green and E. invadens VK-1:NS labeled red, each clone aggregates in distinct clusters. B. Reverse-color labeling of trophozoites of E. invadens IP-1 (red) and E. invadens VK-1:NS (green), the clones aggregate in distinct clusters. C. E. invadens IP-1 labeled with both green and red dyes; trophozoites mix equally and look yellow under the microscope. D. E. invadens VK-1:NS labeled with both green and red dyes. In all trials, cells were labeled with CellTracker Green CMFD and Red (Invitrogen). All images taken at 36-h, scale bar = 100-μm, X10 magnification.

    Morphology, Cell Division, and Phylogeny of Uroleptus longicaudatus (Ciliophora, Hypotricha), a Species of the Uroleptus limnetis Complex

    A–I. Chinese population of Uroleptus longicaudatus from life (A–D) and after protargol preparation (E–I). A. Ventral view of a representative specimen with fully extended tail. B. Ventral view of a cell slightly compressed under the cover glass and retracted tail. C. Posterior body portion (tail retracted) in ventral view showing dorsal cilia (arrows) of outermost kineties. D. Posterior body portion of contracted specimen showing left marginal row (arrow) and midventral cirri (arrowhead). E. Ventral view of infraciliature, arrows mark a long diatom (Synedra sp.). F. Infraciliature of anterior body portion showing, inter alia, the endoral (arrowhead) and paroral (arrow). G. Infraciliature of central body portion in ventral view and macronuclear nodules. Arrows mark right cirri of midventral pairs, arrowheads mark left marginal cirri. H. Dorsal view of anterior body portion showing some dikinetids of dorsal kineties (arrows) and adoral zone of membranelles. I. Infraciliature of tail region in ventral view showing rearmost cirri of midventral complex (arrows), transverse cirri, and caudal cirri (arrowheads). AZM = adoral zone of membranelles; CV = contractile vacuole; DK = rear end of dorsal kinety 4; FC = frontal cirri; FTC = frontoterminal cirri; LMR = left marginal row; Ma = macronuclear nodules; RMR = right marginal row; TC = transverse cirri. Scale bars: 60 μm (A, B); 55 μm (E); 40 μm (H).

  • Evolutionary History of the Enzymes Involved in the Calvin–Benson Cycle in Euglenids

    Evolutionary History of the Enzymes Involved in the Calvin–Benson Cycle in Euglenids

    Diagram showing the origin of each enzyme involved in the Calvin–Benson cycle, determined by phylogenetic analyses. Each enzyme is surrounded by a box. An orange box indicates chromophyte ancestry, a green box indicates a green algal ancestry, a red box indicates a red algal ancestry and a black, dashed box indicates that the ancestry could not be determined. The molecules that each enzyme interacts with are shown on either side of the arrow that connects the enzyme box to the line. Diagram modified from Wang et al. ().

  • A Novel Fluorescent Labeling Method Enables Monitoring of Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Developing Microsporidia

    A Novel Fluorescent Labeling Method Enables Monitoring of Spatio‐Temporal Dynamics of Developing Microsporidia

    Microtubule reorganization. Plated HeLa cells were stained for β tubulin to show microtubule distribution in control cells and compared with Anncaliia algerae infected or Nocodazole treated cells. DRAQ5 was added to the samples to stain host and parasite nuclei. A–C. Control HeLa cells with microtubules (MT) in their normal organization and distribution. D–F. Three days post A. algerae infection. The organization of microtubules has changed in association with the parasites (arrows). G–I. Day 5 PI the microtubules no longer present in elongated patterns instead they appear disorganized while parasites are distributed throughout the cytoplasm (arrows). J–L. Microtubules of uninfected HeLa cells treated with nocodazole for 30 min appear similar to the disorganization induced by the microsporidian. N = host nuclei; arrows = DRAQ5 stained parasite nuclei; MT = microtubules.

Anterior portion of the buccal field. E, F. Dorsal view, arrowheads indicate the contractile vacuole. G. Variants of macronuclei. H. Middle part of the oral apparatus. I. Posterior end of the cell, arrowheads point to caudal cilia. J. To show the contractile vacuole pore (arrowhead). K. Posterior portion of the oral apparatus. M1, 3 = membranelle 1, 3; M2a = anterior part of membranelle 2; M2b = posterior part of membranelle 2; PM = paroral membrane. Bars = 40 μm (A–C, E, F); 15 μm (D, H–K).
