  • Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the isolation of micro- and macronuclei of Tetrahymena Pyriformis. With the exception of a few amicronucleate or partially amicronucleate strains of Tetrahymenaa each cell contains two types of nuclei, a smaller micronucleus and a larger macronucleus. Although these two nuclei are formed from daughter nuclei of a single mitotic division (the second postzygotic division) during conjugation, they differ in most of their structural and functional properties… CONTINUE READING
