The pseudocoelomic body cavity of the rotifer Asplanchna spp. contains free cells that form a highly dynamic, three-dimensional polygonal network of filopodia. Using video-enhanced differential interference contrast microscopy, we have qualitatively and quantitatively characterized the motion types involved with network motility: (1) filopodial junctions… CONTINUE READING
