A Multidisciplinary Approach to Describe Protists: Redescriptions of Novistrombidium testaceum Anigstein 1914 and Strombidium inclinatum Montagnes, Taylor, and Lynn 1990 (Ciliophora, Oligotrichia)
Abstract We combined behavioral, morphological (live, stained, scanning and transmission electron-microscope), and molecular data to redescribe two common, intertidal oligotrich ciliates,Expand

A Multidisciplinary Approach to Describe Protists: a Morphological, Ultrastructural, and Molecular Study on Peritromus kahli Villeneuve-Brachon, 1940 (Ciliophora, Heterotrichea)
Abstract This study represents the first extended report on a species of the ciliate genus Peritromus, widespread in marine biotopes, characterized by a dorso-ventral differentiation peculiar amongExpand

Molecular systematics and ultrastructural characterization of a forgotten species: Chattonidium setense (Ciliophora, Heterotrichea)
In the present paper we redescribe the ciliate Chattonidium setense Villeneuve 1937 combining morphological observations (live, stained, scanning, and transmission electron microscope) withExpand

Large-scale phylogenomic analysis reveals the phylogenetic position of the problematic taxon Protocruzia and unravels the deep phylogenetic affinities of the ciliate lineages.
The Ciliophora is one of the most studied protist lineages because of its important ecological role in the microbial loop. While there is an abundance of molecular data for many ciliate groups, it isExpand

“Candidatus Cryptoprodotis polytropus,” A Novel Rickettsia‐Like Organism in the Ciliated Protist Pseudomicrothorax dubius (Ciliophora, Nassophorea)
ABSTRACT. Rickettsia‐like organisms (RLO) are obligate, often highly fastidious, intracellular bacterial parasites associated with a variety of vertebrate and invertebrate hosts. Despite theirExpand

Euplotes uncinatus (Ciliophora, Hypotrichia), a new species with zooxanthellae
During the observations of a field collection of Maristentor dinoferus with fluorescence microscopy, we discovered a smaller ciliate with zooxanthellae. On the basis of morphological, morphometricExpand

ED-B fibronectin expression is a marker of epithelial-mesenchymal transition in translational oncology
Fibronectin is a component of the extracellular matrix that links collagen fibers to integrins on the cell's surface. The splicing isoforms, containing the ED-B domain, are not expressed in adultExpand

Epixenosomes: Peculiar Epibionts of the Hypotrich Ciliate Euplotidium Itoi Defend Their Host Against Predators
ABSTRACT. Euplotidium itoi harbors on its dorsal surface peculiar episymbionts (referred to as epixenosomes) equipped with a complex extrusive apparatus. In the laboratory. E. itoi stocks withoutExpand
