Due to the significant lack of information on the community structure of deep-sea nanoflagellates and other nanofauna components as a potentially important component of deepsea matter fluxes, the aim of the present study was to check whether there is a specific deep-sea nanofauna (<20 μm) community. Studies were carried out in the deep oligotrophic basins(More)
The dinoflagellateOxyrrhis marina and the ciliatePleuronema marinum were investigated in regard to their trichocysts. InO. marina the resting trichocyst consists of shaft and tip; while the tip exhibits a tubulous inner structure, the material of the shaft possesses a longitudinally oriented striation of 80 Å, subdivided into periods of 40 Å. The resting(More)
Eukaryotic microbial life at abyssal depths remains "uncharted territory" in eukaryotic microbiology. No phylogenetic surveys have focused on the largest benthic environment on this planet, the abyssal plains. Moreover, knowledge of the spatial patterns of deep-sea community structure is scanty, and what little is known originates primarily from(More)
Spumochlamys perforata n. sp. and Spumochlamys bryora n. sp. were isolated and described from dry epiphytic moss. The morphology and ultrastructure of both species clearly demonstrate that they belong to the genus Spumochlamys (family Microchlamyiidae). They differ from its only described member, Spumochlamys iliensis (as well as from species of(More)
Many of the flagellates inhabiting the hindgut of lower termites are associated with ectobiotic, rod-like bacteria or spirochetes. Different types of attachment sites are present. Electron dense material underlies, e.g., the plasma membrane ofJoenia annectens at the contact site, whereas other attachment sites do not show any visible specializations. The(More)
The heliozoonActinophrys sol is characterized by needle-like axopodia radiating from the spherical cell body. When helio-zoons capture food organisms, the prey is caught by adhesion to the surface of axopodia where numerous extrusomes are present close to the plasma membrane. To understand the molecular mechanism by which the heliozoons capture prey(More)

The periplast of the CryptophyceaeRhodomonas has a hexagonal substructure. This substructure is caused by periplast plates. In freeze fracture replicas of the plasma membrane, there are corresponding hexagonal areas with numerous particles. These areas are separated by regions with less particles. Aggregates of particles, partly rosette-like, indicate(More)
During the logarithmic growth of the ciliatePseudomicrothorax dubius associations between mitochondria, rough endoplasmic reticulum and dictyosomes have been observed. The Golgi apparatus is very active and it is suggested that, as a consequence of cytotic activity, the contents of the Golgi vesicles become incorporated into large irregular vacuoles as(More)
