SummaryThe trophic cells of the protostelids,Ceratiomyxella tahitiensis, Cavostelium apophysatum, Planoprotostelium aurantium, andClastostelium recurvatum, and the reduced myxomycete,Echinostelium bisporum, were examined with indirect immunofluorescence to determine the overall structure of the microtubular cytoskeletons of each type of cell. All five species have a distinct flagellar apparatus in the amoeboflagellate state, but they vary with respect to the presence of body microtubules, those…

Microtubules and the flagellar apparatus in zoospores and cysts of the fungusPhytophthora cinnamomi
TLDR
Labelling of microtubules using antibodies directed towards tubulin has revealed new details of the arrangement of the flagellar rootlets in these cells, and of the variability that occurs from cell to cell.
The ultrastructure of the trophic cells of the protostelidPlanoprotθstelium aurantium
TLDR
Evidence is presented to show that P. aurantium is closely related to the non-flagellateProtostelium mycophagaOlive andStoianovitch, and features are useful in explaining the differences in swimming behavior between P. Aurantium and biflagellates.

TLDR
When Naegleria gruberi flagellates were extracted with nonionic detergent and stained by the indirect immunofluorescence method with AA- 4.3, flagella and a network of cytoskeletal microtubules (CSMT) were seen, and one-half the population completed the protein synthesis essential for formation of CSMT 61 min after initiation of the differentiation.
The structure of the pro-flagellar apparatus of the amoebae ofPhysarum polycephalum: Relationship to the flagellar apparatus
TLDR
The growth of the microtubules of the pericentriolar arrays and of the flagella could be the main event which leads to the formation of the fully developed flagellar apparatus inPhysarum amoebae.
The microtubular cytoskeleton of three dinoflagellates: an immunofluorescence study
TLDR
Despite the morphological variability of these gymnodinioid dinoflagellates, data indicate that the microtubular cytoskeleton perfectly reflects the spatial patterning of the epicone and hypocone in each cell.
Fruiting body development in the mycetozoan Echinostelium bisporum
TLDR
Fruiting was followed from the prespore cell stage through the appearance of synaptonemal complexes in the spores in the simple mycetozoan Echinostelium bisporum, finding that each daughter cell then rounds up and begins to produce a sculptured spore wall.
Ultrastructure of the plasmodial slime moldPerichaena vermicularis
TLDR
The morphological evidence and the presence of hydrolytic enzyme suggest the autolytic region of Perichaena vermicularis is being digested and re-adsorbed.
A NEW GENUS OF PROTOSTELIDS SHOWING AFFINITIES WITH CERATIOMYXA
TLDR
A new genus and species of the Protosteliida (Mycetozoa) was isolated from dead plant material- Ceratiomyxella tahitiensis from Tahiti and var.
Ultrastructure and development of the amoebo-flagellate cells of the protostelidProtosporangium articulatum
TLDR
Amoebo-flagellate cells develop upon spore germination in the protostelidProtosporangium articulatum with a swarm cell-like morphology and only the nucleus-associated flagella are able to generate the jerking, helical swim typical of amoebic swims.
