Upon impalement with a microelectrode in a Ca-free medium containing 5 mM ATP, a Chlamydomonas cell lost its flagellar activity within 45 s, and the injection of either positive or negative direct current did not stimulate the flagella to beat after that time. When 3 mM Mg l + was added to the external medium, the impaled cell exhibited a flagellar frequency of 22 ± 7 Hz. With 5 mM ATP and 3 min Mg + in a Ca-free medium, negative direct electric current inhibited flagellar frequency and… CONTINUE READING
