The surface of Dileptus contains three different regions: locomotor, oral and sensory. Each region has cilia with a specific structure and arranged in a characteristic pattern. In the morphogenetic situation when a sensory region transforms into a locomotor one, sensory cilia undergo structural changes converting them into locomotor cilia. The evidence for(More)
The surface of the ciliate Dileptus contains locomotor and sensory domains. Each domain contains cilia of its own kind, arranged in a characteristic pattern. Transformation of a portion of the locomotor area into the sensory domain has been studied. Locomotor ciliary units in the transforming area undergo resorption of ciliary shafts, which are subsequently(More)
The modes of pattern regulation found in the ciliates Dileptus and Paraurostyla are compared. These forms are systematically distant but both possess very extensive regenerative capacities. They are characterized by 2 types of ciliary patterns: the ciliature of Dileptus has largely a simple pattern composed of single kinetosomes while that of Paraurostyla(More)
Morphometric and ultrastructural studies of shape and pattern regulation were performed on Dileptus anser. In this ciliate 2 body regions can be distinguished: proboscis and trunk. When a large portion of the trunk is excised, shape regulation occurs and the proper proboscis/trunk ratio is restored through elongation of the remnant of the trunk and(More)
