Cell division in the marine red algae Polysiphonia harveyi Bailey and P. denudata (Dillwyn) Kutzing was studied with the electron microscope. Cells comprising the compact spermatangial branches of male plants were used exclusively because of their small size, large numbers and the ease with which the division planes can be predetermined. Some features characterizing mitosis in Polysiphonia confirm earlier electron microscope observations in Membranoptera, the only other florideophycean algae in… 

Ultrastructure of polysporogenesis in Pleonosporium vancouverianum (Ceramiaceae, Rhodophyta)

Ulastructural features of red algal polysporogenesis are reported for the first time and a polar ring was observed adjacent to the nuclear envelope of a nucleus in interkinesis.

ULTRASTRUCTURE OF MEIOSIS IN DASYA BAILLOUVIANA (RHODOPHYTA). II. PROMETAPHASE I—TELOPHASE II AND POST‐DIVISION NUCLEAR BEHAVIOR 1

This is the second of two papers which together are the first comprehensive ultrastructural report of meiosis in a red alga, and both interkinesis and a simultaneous division of two separate nuclei during meiosis II was demonstrated.

Ultrastructure of cell division in the marine red algaLomentaria baileyana

It is suggested that mitosis in Lomentaria represents an evolutionary intermediate between that seen in the higher and lower groups of red algae, in agreement with conventional morphological and light microscopic criteria used to place it in the Rhodymeniales.

Chloroplast division polarity, a marker of cell division planes during morphogenesis inBangia vermicularis Harvey (Rhodophyceae)

Ultrastructural observations of dividing cells inBangia vermicularis revealed a type of chloroplast division (plastokinesis) not previously reported in the red algae, and multilamellar bodies derived from the CE appear to serve as the source of membranes for the developing septum in the channels.

Centromere structure and chromosome number in mitosis of the colourless phytoflagellate Polytoma papillatum (Chlorophyceae, Volvocales, Chlamydomonadaceae).

Centromere structure is described in mitosis of the unicellular biflagellate alga Polytoma papillatum using transmission electron microscopy, which reveals five-layered organization of the kinetochore in the alga is unusual.

Ultrastructure and Mitosis of Glaucosphaera vacuolata

An investigation of the vegetative and mitotic ultrastructure of Glaucosphaera vacuolata proposes a change in this organism's taxonomic position and shows that unlike the Glaucophyta, Glau cosphaera has a closed mitotic spindle and displays aspects of mitosis similar to those of red algae.

Mitosis in the freshwater red algaBatrachospermum ectocarpum

Feature of mitosis in Batrachospermum are believed to be intermediate between those exhibited by the lower and higher orders of red algae, this being consistent with the taxonomic placement of the genus in the Nemaliales, the least advanced order of the classFlorideophyceae.

Systematics of red algae (Rhodophyta)

Red algal systematics is in a state of flux unparalleled since the early decades of this century. Ultrastructural and biochemical studies are providing features for a revised classification at

Fibrous vacuole associated organelles (FVAOs) in the florideophyceae: a new interpretation of the «appareil cinétique»

The FVAO appears to arise from ER and to initiate formation of the fibrous vacuoles characteristic of florideophycean spermatangia and spores, and it is hypothesized that the organelle may process the vacuolar contents in some manner and modify the vacUolar membrane, thereby enabling this membrane to ultimately fuse with the plasma membrane.

Protoplast isolation and regeneration in the marine red alga Porphyra nereocystis

We have developed a method for isolating viable protoplasts from the blade phase of the epiphytic marine red alga Porphyra nereocystis Anderson, using a two-step enzymatic digestion with commercially

Gametophyte germlings from unialgal cultures of Membranoptera platyphylla were examined with the electron microscope. The events of mitosis were observed in dividing cells near the thallus apex. In

CELLULAR ORGANIZATION, MITOSIS, AND CYTOKINESIS IN THE ULOTRICHALEAN ALGA, KLEBSORMIDIUM 1, 2, 3

The cytology of K. flaccidum is compared to those of Ulothrix fimbriata and Stigeoclonium helveticum and the comparison does not support the present classification of the 3 species, and indicates the value of comparative fine structural studies in the classification of ulotrichalean algae.

Cell division in stichococcus

Results indicate a close phyletic relationship between Stichococcus and Klebsormidium, two organisms which are now considered to be more closely related to the progenitors of the higher land plants than most of the other members of the Ulotrichales.

An analysis of the pattern and rate of cell division, and morphogenesis of sporelings of Callithamnion hookeri (Dillw.) S. F. Gray (Rhodophyta, Ceramiales)

A detailed analysis of carposporeling morphogenesis has indicated that the developmental potential of fully differentiated shoot and rhizoidal cells is reversible and that each type of cell division is reversible.

ELECTRON MICROSCOPE OBSERVATIONS OF TELOPHASE II IN THE FLORIDEOPHYCEAE 1

Observations essentially support Yamanouchi's description of telophase II in Polysiphonia flexicaulis (Harvey) Collins (as P. violacea) and suggest that meiosis in these algae could be basically similar to “uninuclear meiosis” in the fungi Saprolegnia and Saccharomyces.

The Life History of Polysiphonia violacea

There is thus an alternation of a sexual plant (gametophyte) with a tetrasporic plant (sporophytes) in the life history of Polysiphonia, the cystocarp being included as an early part of the sporophytic phase.
