Publisher Summary This chapter presents an overview of endosymbiosis, particularly the evolution of cryptomonad and the endosymbiosis between cryptomonad and red algae. The cryptomonad engulfs red algae and acquires photosynthetic capacity along with morphological and biochemical evidence. The endosymbiosis between cryptomonad and red algae developed from a predator-prey relationship is described. The studies to validate that cryptomonads and red algae are endosymbiont have been examined. The… CONTINUE READING
