Organelles of two kinds were studied: nemadesmata and transverse fibres, which are kinetosomal rootlets in oral parts of Dileptus. A diminution of microtubule number and length was found in organelles of size-reduced and regenerating cells, as compared to normal ones. It appeared, however, that organelles reduced in size were always larger and longer than(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)
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 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)
Tetrahymena thermophila cells have two types of polarized morphogenesis: divisional morphogenesis and oral reorganization (OR). The aim of this research is the analysis of cortical patterns of immunostaining during cell division and in OR using previously characterized antibodies against fenestrin and epiplasm B proteins. During cell division, the anarchic(More)

The size of mouthparts and their constituent organelles was studied in cells of Dileptus anser, enlarged by overfeeding. The oral structures of large cells were either of normal dimensions and appearance, or they were enlarged and deformed in shape. The increase in size of mouthparts was accompanied by an increase in number of their microtubular organelles.(More)
Following transection ofDileptus regulation of cell shape and cortical pattern was studied during regeneration in an attempt to understand the interrelations of these two regulation processes. The cell ofDileptus consists of two regions, proboscis and trunk, with the oral structures marking the border between them. The isolated proboscis is able to(More)
