By combining phalloidin-TRITC staining with confocal scanning laser microscopy (CSLM), the pattern of the musculature in two species of Rotifera, Euchlanis dilatata unisetata and Brachionus quadridentatus is revealed. The same general muscle pattern prevails in both species. The major components of the body wall musculature are: 1. retractor muscles (5 pairs in E. dilatata unisetata and 3 pairs in B. quadridentatus); 2. Two pairs of dorso-ventral muscles; 3. Two pairs of perpendicular muscles… Expand

Musculature of Notholca acuminata (Rotifera: Ploima: Brachionidae) revealed by confocal scanning laser microscopy
TLDR
Muscle-revealing staining shows promise for providing additional information on previously unrecognized complexity in rotifer musculature that will be useful in functional morphology and phylogenetic analyses. Expand
Study of architectonics of rotifer musculature by the method of fluorescence with use of confocal microscopy
TLDR
Differences in localization and thickness of some elements of musculature of these species are determined by morphological peculiarities of structure of the corona, mastax, and foot, as well as by the rotifer body shape. Expand
Musculature of an illoricate predatory rotifer Asplanchnopus multiceps as revealed by phalloidin fluorescence and confocal microscopy.
TLDR
The muscular patterns in rotifers with different lifestyles differ clearly, therefore, the muscular patterns seem to be determined by the mode of locomotion and feeding behaviour. Expand
External Morphology and Muscle Arrangement of Brachionus urceolaris, Floscularia ringens, Hexarthra mira and Notommata glyphura (Rotifera, Monogononta)
TLDR
The study showed that using both CLSM and SEM provides better resolution of the anatomy and external morphology of rotifers than using one of these techniques alone, which can facilitate better understanding of the complicated anatomy of these animals. Expand
Somatic musculature of rotifers Asplanchna girodi Guerne, 1888 and Trichotria pocillum (Müller, 1776) (Rotifera, Pseudotrrocha, Ploima): Comparative aspect
Comparative study of somatic musculature in illoricate rotifer Asplanchina girodi Guerne, 1888 and loricate Trichotria pocillum (Müller, 1776) has been carried out by the method of phalloidinExpand
The Musculature of Testudinella patina (Rotifera: Flosculariacea), Revealed with CLSM
The musculature of Testudinella patina was visualized using phalloidin-linked fluorescent dye by confocal laser scanning microscopy. The conspicuous broad retractors appear to be made up of fiveExpand
The musculature of Testudinella patina (Rotifera: Flosculariacea), revealed with CLSM
TLDR
The present results stress that revealing muscles by staining may produce new information from even well-investigated species, and that this information may contribute to a better understanding of functional as well as phylogenetic aspects of rotifer biology. Expand
Cholinergic neuromuscular junctions in Brachionus calyciflorus and Lecane quadridentata (Rotifera: Monogononta)
TLDR
The distribution pattern of muscular and acetylcholine systems showed considerable differences between the two species that might be related to different adaptations to particular ecological niches and contributes to the development of potential neuro-pharmacological and toxicological studies using rotifers as model organism. Expand
Functional morphology of somatic muscles and anterolateral setae in Filinia novaezealandiae Shiel and Sanoamuang, 1993 (Rotifera)
TLDR
Saltation in F. novaezealandiae is probably a result of heightened coronal activity that immediately follows cycles of setal abduction/adduction, and may be of utility in understanding the evolution of locomotory mechanisms among rotifers. Expand
The somatic musculature of Bryceella stylata ( Milne , 1886 ) ( Rotifera : Proalidae ) as revealed by confocal laser scanning microscopy with additional new data on its trophi and overall morphology
The monogonont rotifer Bryceella stylata was investigated with light, electron and confocal laser scanning (CLSM) microscopy to provide detailed insights into its anatomy and new information forExpand

The skeletal muscles of rotifers are monocellular or occasionally bicellular. They display great diversity of cytological features correlated to their functional differentiation. The cross-striatedExpand
The muscle of a monogonont rotifer, Trichocerca rattus. II. The central retractor muscles.
TLDR
The functions of the cytological specializations are discussed in the light of the behaviour assumed by the CRM: the retraction of the rotatory apparatus in the trunk of T. rattus. Expand
The distribution of F-actin during the development of Diphyllobothrium dendriticum (Cestoda)

The results show that actin filaments, in all developmental stages of the tapeworm Diphyllobothrium dendriticum, can be found in the subtegument and the flame cells. Expand
Movements in rotifers: correlations of ultrastructure and behavior
TLDR
Original observations on rotifer cilia and muscles are used to explain the mechanism of their movements and hypotheses on the first articulated (muscle-integument) movements which exist alongside ciliary motion in certain rotifers are discussed. Expand
Sister-group relationship of Gnathostomulida and Rotifera-Acanthocephala
TLDR
It is proposed that jaw substructure shows a homology, and thus a sister-group relationship, between Gnathostomulida and the clade containing Rotifera plus Acanthocephala and the relationships among the phyla of lower worms are problematic. Expand
Epidermal ultrastructure of Seison nebaliae and Seison annulatus, and a comparison of epidermal structures within the Gnathifera
TLDR
A comparison of epidermal structures within the Gnathifera Ahlrichs, 1995, confirms phylogenetic relationships earlier proposed by the author, as well as confirming the presence of bundles of filaments in the epidermis of S. nebaliae. Expand

Localization and neuroanatomy of catecholaminergic neurons in some rotifer species
TLDR
These rotifers, systematically distant from each other, show the same pattern of the catecholaminergic part of the nervous system, formed of a small, but steady number of neurons characteristic for each species. Expand
