The role of microtubules and microfilaments in the micronucleus ofParamecium bursaria during mitosis


A unique spindle apparatus develops during mitosis in the micronucleus ofParamecium bursaria. During interphase the micronucleus contains short microtubule profiles and clumps of condensed chromatin. Throughout mitosis the nuclear envelope remains intact. During prophase, cup-shaped structures termed microlamellae develop in close association with regions… (More)
