Rhythmic settling induced by temperature cycles in continuously-stirred autotrophic cultures of Euglena gracilis (Z strain)


Temperature cycles which produced synchrony of cell division in autotrophic Euglena (preceding paper, Terry and Edmunds, 1970) usually also evoked a cellular settling rhythm. The rhythm was expressed as a recurrent cycle of cell attachment to culture-vessel surfaces, with nearly the same phase angle to each of the different temperature cycles. Attachment… (More)
