Microfilaments and microtubules in isolated fiber cells of Trichoplax adhaerens (Placozoa)


Fiber cells isolated by mechanical disruption of the tissue in Ca2+-free sea water attach firmly to the substrate by discrete adhesion plaques. They are capable of forming a lamellipodium and long, slender extensions while the cell bodies remain stationary. The extensions are slowly elongated but can suddenly be withdrawn by contraction. Bundles of F-actin… (More)
