THE nature of the primary processes in the photoreceptor and the mechanism of their coupling with the mechanical response of the flagella are the most important and, at the same time, the least investigated problems of the phototaxis in flagellates1–5. It has been suggested that the transduction of the light stimulus in phototaxis might involve bioelectric processes4,6–9, but no direct experimental evidence supports this hypothesis. The bioelectric control of the locomotor responses to light10… CONTINUE READING
