Effect of Actinomycin D on Salinity Acclimation of Paramecium calkinsi (Ciliophora, Peniculia)


Salinity acclimation of the euryhaline ciliate Paramecium calkinsi evaluated by swimming velocity was accomplished within four to five days. In two series of the main experiment, acclimation continued for two and three days when actinomycin D (an inhibitor of DNA-dependent RNA polymerase) was added after various periods of the ciliate incubation at a… (More)
