In contrast to a mitotic-spindle-associated bipolar cytokinesis, the cytokinesis of polarized ciliates is preceded by a reorganization of the cortex into dual metameric patterns for prospective daughter cells and then separated by a transverse fission line. This study concerns relations between the generation of cortical metamery and the formation of the fission line in an amicronuclear (i.e., without mitotic spindle) ciliate, Tetrahymena pyriformis. The fission line appears in the division of… CONTINUE READING
