Previous studies have shown that the vacuolar-ATPase (V-ATPase) of the contractile vacuole complexes (CVCs) in Paramecium multimicronucleatum is necessary for fluid segregation and osmoregulation. In the current study, immunofluorescence showed that the development of a new CVC begins with the formation of a new pore around which the collecting canals form. The decorated membranes are then deposited around the newly formed collecting canals. Quick-freeze deep-etch techniques reveal that six 10… CONTINUE READING
