Relatively rigid pellicle and more or less fixed shape Distinct cytostome (mouth) Structure Dimorphic nuclei, typically larger macronuclei and one more smaller micronuclei Ciliophora : Ciliophora Locomotion: cilia : Locomotion: cilia Cilia are generally similar to flagella but are much shorter, more numerous and widely distributed over the surface of the organism cilia have evolved into more specialized structures Trichocysts: used for protection, rodlike or oval structures that can be discharged and stuck to predators Trichocysts : Trichocysts Body types : Body types Nutrition: : Nutrition: some ciliates possess an oral groove cilia sweep food particles down this groove toward the cytopharynx where a food vacuole forms some ciliates even possess an anal pore which is used to remove waste from the organism Genetic Control and Reproduction: : Genetic Control and Reproduction: Ciliate have two kinds of Nuclei Macronuclei: large polyploid nucleus that regulates daily metabolic activities Micronuclei: one or more small nucleus which are genetic reserve of the cell Ciliates can reproduce asexually by transverse binary fission and occasionally by budding Ciliates can reproduce sexually by conjugation Conjugation: : Conjugation: Random contact brings individuals of opposite mating types together (called conjugants) Meiosis results in four haploid pronuclei Three pronuclei and the macronucleus degenerate. Mitosis and mutual exchange of pronuclei is followed by fusion of the pronuclei. Conjugants separate. Nuclear divisions that restore nuclear characteristics of species follow. Cytoplasmic divisions may accompany these events Conjugation : Conjugation You do not have the permission to view this presentation. In order to view it, please contact the author of the presentation.
