  • Dancers are a group of mutants in Paramecium tetraurelia whose Ca2+ current inactivates poorly and are likely to be defective in the structure of their Ca2+ channels. These mutants show prolonged backward swimming in response to K+ and Ba2+ in the medium and were selected by this property in a galvanotactic trough. The dancer mutants are semidominant, and all isolated mutants belong to one complementation group; they are not allelic to any of the previously isolated behavioral mutants of P… CONTINUE READING
