Development of the flagellar apparatus during the cell cycle in unicellular algae

  title={Development of the flagellar apparatus during the cell cycle in unicellular algae},
  author={Peter L. Beech and Kirsten Heimann and Michael Melkonian},
Recent evidence has shown that algal cells acquire different flagella and a heterogeneous basal apparatus through the prolonged development of these structures over more than one cell cycle. A system for numbering algal flagella and basal bodies, which is based on developmental studies, is discussed along with the various means by which the flagellar/basal body developmental cycle can be determined. We review the information now available on development of the separate components of the… CONTINUE READING
