  • Using Tetrahymena pyriformis, strain w, and Tetrahymena thermophila, B-1868, we prepared cell models that showed ciliary reversal with change in Ca-ion concentration, as was also noted for the Paramecium cell model. No differences could be found between these two strains in the reactivation state, and their response to environmental conditions was essentially the same. The reactivation rate was 90% or more. Swimming velocity of the cell model was found to be 200 ± 49 μm/sec at 25.0°C ± 0.5°C… CONTINUE READING
