Abstract— The toxic and phototoxic properties of blepharismin and oxyblepharismin that were purified from the pigments of a ciliated protozoan, Blepharisma japonicum, by thin‐layer chromatography,Expand
Defense Function of Pigment Granules in the Ciliate Blepharisma japonicum against Two Predatory Protists,Amoeba proteus (Rhizopodea) and Climacostomum virens (Ciliata)
Abstract The defense function of pigment granules in the red ciliate Blepharisma japonicum against two predatory protists, Amoeba proteus and Climacostomum virens, was investigated by (1) comparingExpand
Climacostol, a defense toxin of Climacostomum virens (protozoa, ciliata), and its congeners
Climacostol (1), a defense toxin of the heterotrich ciliate Climacostomum virens was established as 5-(Z)-non-2-enyl-benzene-1,3-diol. The structure was rigorously confirmed by the total synthesis.Expand
