Euglena chloroplasts. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a dying euglena releasing its chloroplasts (cyan). Euglena is a freshwater unicellular flagellate protozoan. Chloroplasts are the site of photosynthesis, the process that synthesises carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water using sunlight. The pigment responsible for photosynthesis, chlorophyll, is found on stacks of parallel thylakoids called grana. Magnification: x7000 when printed at 10cm wide.

The activity of aldolase, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, 3-phospho-glycerate kinase, pyruvate phosphokinase, malic dehydrogenase, glutamic-oxalacetic transaminase was studied in extracts of green and streptomycin- or erythromycin-depigmented cells ofEuglena gracilis var.bacillaris obtained by the freezing technique. The presence of lactic dehydrogenase acting with DPN, of glutamic dehydrogenase and of glutamicpyruic-transaminase was not demonstrated. В полученных путем замораживания экстрактах из эеленых и обесцвеченных стрептомицином или эритромицином клеток Euglena gracilis var. bacillaris была определена активность следующих ферментов: альдолазы, глицеринальдегид-фосфат-дегидрогеназы, фосфоглицерат-киназы, пируат-киназы, малат-де-гидрогеназы, глутамат
1. In Copromonas subtilis , Dobell, and Euglena sp. there is a Golgi apparatus consisting of osmiophil material in the form of granules, which are associated with the osmoregulatory mechanism of the cell.. 2. Inside the granules, water collects, so that they become spherical vacuoles, identical with what have in the past been called contractile vacuoles (Copromonas) or accessory contractile vacuoles (Euglena viridis).. 3. In Euglena viridis, the Golgi apparatus is closely applied to the so-called contractile vacuole, and consists of numerous loaf-shaped osmiophil bodies which undergo a regular series of changes from systole to diastole, and vice versa.. 4. In Copromonas, the osmiophil material may form a thick cortex surrounding what has been called the reservoir, it may be attached to the reservoir in fairly regular loafshaped bodies as in Euglena, or it may be completely detached from the reservoir.. 5. The so-called contractile vacuoles of Copromonas are vesicles containing water, which are ...
The sequencing of various eukaryotic genomes has demonstrated that a surprisingly small number of genes generate a complex proteome. For example, the estimated
When acting as a heterotroph (animal), the Euglena surrounds a particle of food and consumes it by phagocytosis. When acting as an autotroph, the Euglena has chloroplasts which produce sugars by photosynthesis. The chloroplasts use the pigments chlorophyll a and chlorophyll b. The number and shape of chloroplasts within Euglena varies greatly. Euglena are able to move through aquatic environments by using a large flagellum for locomotion. To detect light, the cell has an eyespot, a primitive organelle that filters sunlight into light-detecting, photo-sensitive structures. These structures, at the base of the flagellum, allow only certain wavelengths of light to register. With the aid of this photo-sensitive area, the Euglena can shift its position to get better photosynthesis. The mobility of Euglena also allows hunting. Most Euglena are considered mixotrophs: autotrophs in sunlight and heterotrophs in the dark. Euglena do not have plant cell walls, but have a pellicle instead. The pellicle is ...
Silva (1960: 19) notes "Euglena (Euglenaceae, Euglenophyta). This genus was established by Ehrenberg (1830a, p. 508) to accommodate those euglenoid organisms that have eyespots.

Euglena gracilis is a eukaryotic, unicellular phytoflagellate that has been widely studied in basic science and applied science. Under dark, anaerobic conditions, the cells of E. gracilis produce a wax ester that can be converted into biofuel. Here, we demonstrate that under dark, anaerobic conditions, E. gracilis excretes organic acids, such as succinate and lactate, which are bulk chemicals used in the production of bioplastics. The levels of succinate were altered by changes in the medium and temperature during dark, anaerobic incubation. Succinate production was enhanced when cells were incubated in CM medium in the presence of NaHCO3. Excretion of lactate was minimal in the absence of external carbon sources, but lactate was produced in the presence of glucose during dark, anaerobic incubation. E. gracilis predominantly produced L-lactate; however, the percentage of D-lactate increased to 28.4% in CM medium at 30°C. Finally, we used a commercial strain of E. gracilis for succinate production and

I found a couple of what I believe to be Euglena in a recent water sample. I am really fascinated by these shape shifters. Amazing life forms. And colorful. They moved around quite a lot and were very difficult to capture and impossible to stack. I adopted the spray and prey method and took a couple of hundred single images. Then I selected these which were the only few I managed to get in decent focus. No stacking, just single images. To freeze the flagella I used an exposure time between 1/2000 and 1/2500. Hence, ISO is quite high, but noise was not too bad. The DIC background was very homogenous between images so I decided to put 4 Euglena on each image and these were selected such that their final location on the image you see was close to their location in the original image. Hence, they melted into background in a natural way without too much adjustment ...
β-type IP39 protein of 264 aas and 4 TMSs in a 1 3 TMS arrangement. Euglenoid flagellates have striped surface structures comprising pellicles, which allow the cell shape to vary from rigid to flexible during the characteristic movement of the flagellates. In Euglena gracilis, the pellicular strip membranes are covered with paracrystalline arrays of a major integral membrane protein, IP39, a four TMS protein with the conserved sequence motif of the PMP-22/EMP/MP20/Claudin superfamily. Suzuki et al. 2013 reported the three-dimensional structure of Euglena IP39 determined by electron crystallography. Two-dimensional crystals of IP39 formed a striated pattern of antiparallel double-rows in which trimeric IP39 units are longitudinally polymerised, resulting in continuously extending zigzag-shaped lines. Structural analysis revealed an asymmetric molecular arrangement in the trimer, suggesting that at least four different interactions between neighbouring protomers are involved. A combination of ...
Some organisms combine the properties of animals and plants. For example, Euglena (Figure 1-10) is a motile, single-celled organism that resembles plants in being photosynthetic, but it resembles animals in its ability to eat food particles. Euglena is part of a separate eukaryotic lineage that diverged from those of plants and animals early in the evolutionary history of eukaryotes. Euglena and other unicellular , Figure 1-10 Some organisms, such as the flagellate Euglena (shown here) and Volvox (see Figure 1-3), combine properties that are normally associated with both animals (motility) and plants (photosynthetic ability). Environmental interaction. All animals interact with their environments. The study of organismal interaction with the environment is known as ecology. Of special interest are the factors that affect the geographic distribution and abundance of animals (Chapters 39 and 40). The science of ecology permits us to understand how an organism can perceive environmental stimuli and ...

SUMMARY: Euglena gracilis pellicle, separated by sucrose density gradient centrifugation, had a high cobalamin (Cb1) binding activity. Of the Cb1 binding protein 65% was solubilized from E. gracilis pellicle by using 0.1% SDS/2 M-urea and the residual 35% by using 1% (w/v) SDS. Both of the Cb1 binding protein fractions showed a broad pH dependence for the binding of Cb1. No evidence for the involvement of SH-groups or metal ions in Cb1 binding was obtained. The K s values for cyanocobalamin of the proteins solubilized with 0.1% SDS/2 M-urea and with 1% SDS were 0.22 and 0.19 nM, respectively. The M r of a Cb1 binding polypeptide of each protein was estimated to be 38000 by SDS-PAGE. The Cb1 binding protein solubilized with 0.1% SDS/2 M-urea was purified to homogeneity. Inhibition experiments on Cb1 uptake in E. gracilis cells, using an antibody against the Cb1 binding protein solubilized with 0.1% SDS/2 M-urea, showed that the Cb1 binding proteins solubilized with 0.1% SDS/2 M-urea and 1% SDS take part

Abstract- The small amounts of chlorophyll precursors in dark-grown cells of Euglena gracilis Klebs var. bacillaris Pringsheim and the presence of contaminants which interfere with their purification have made their isolation and characterization difficult. We now extract cells with acetone: 0.1 M NH4OH (9:1 v/v). Protochlorophyll is obtained by extracting this solution with petroleum ether (30-50° b.p.) and extracting this petroleum ether fraction with 80% acetone to remove substances which interfere with subsequent chromatography. Protochlorophyllide remaining in the original acetone: NH4OH fraction is extractable into diethyl ether after adjusting the pH to approximately 5.5. Both pigments are verified and further purified by chromatography on Whatmann 3 MM paper using benzene:petroleum ether:acetone (30:10:1) or cellulose MN 300 thin layers with methanol:methylene chloride:water (100:18:20). These pigments resemble their well-described barley counterparts in solubility properties, spectral ...

Virescence, as a recognizable phenotype in the early development stage of cotton, is not only available for research on chloroplast development and photosynthesis but also for heterosis exploitation in cotton. In current study, for fine mapping of virescent-1 (v1) in cotton, three populations with a total of 5 678 individuals were constructed using T582 which has the virescent trait. Tobacco rattle virus, TRV1 and TRV2 (pYL156), were used as vectors for the virus-induced gene silencing (VIGS) assay. The v1 gene was fine-mapped to a 20 kb interval on chromosome 20 of tetraploid cotton. We identified only one candidate gene with four single nucleotide polymorphisms between parents, among which the single nucleotide polymorphism at the position of 1 082 base pair caused the change of amino acid residue from Arg (3-79) to Lys (T582). The relative expression of the candidate gene in virescent plants was extensively lower than that in normal plants. Nullification of the gene by VIGS significantly turned the

1. Exposure of Astasia longa to oxygen+carbon dioxide (95:5) at atmospheric pressure leads to an inhibition of growth rate and of respiration. Growth resumes at the normal rate as soon as the oxygenation is discontinued, but respiration recovers more slowly. 2. Mitochondria prepared from cells exposed to oxygen+carbon dioxide (95:5) during growth have considerably decreased activities of succinate-cytochrome c oxidoreductase, NADH-cytochrome c oxidoreductase, succinate dehydrogenase and succinate oxidase activities as compared with mitochondria obtained from cells exposed to air+carbon dioxide (95:5). Cytochrome oxidase activity is not appreciably inhibited by exposure of the cells to 95% oxygen. 3. The mitochondrial fraction of Astasia contains rhodoquinone. The rhodoquinone concentration increases in cells exposed to 95% oxygen. The content of ergosterol-containing compounds also increases in the mitochondria of cells exposed to 95% oxygen. There is little change in the ubiquinone content of ...
Dr. Schwartzbach came to the Department in 2001 from the University of Nebraska. He teaches Biology 3130 Cell Biology. He began his research career characterizing the coding capacity of the chloroplast genome and established his laboratory in Nebraska focusing on the photoregulation of chloroplast development in the protist Euglena. In the course of these studies he found that some Euglena proteins were synthesized as polyprotein precursors, that Euglena mRNAs contained a common trans-spliced 5 end and that Euglena transcripts did not contain the canonical intron exon junctions characteristic of most eukaryotic messages. His current research focuses on the unique ER to Golgi to chloroplast transport pathway for cytoplasmically synthesized chloroplast proteins and the process of secondary endosymbiosis responsible for the evolution of complex plastids; plastids surrounded by three or four membranes rather than the two membranes of higher plants and most algae. ...
Astasia" redirects here. This term was also applied to chlorophyll-less Euglena. Astasis is a lack of motor coordination marked by an inability to stand, walk or even sit without assistance due to disruption of muscle coordination. The term astasia is interchangeable with astasis and is most commonly referred to as astasia in the literature describing it. Astasis is the inability to stand or sit up without assistance in the absence of motor weakness or sensory loss (although the inclusion of the lack of motor weakness has been debated by some physicians). It is categorized more as a symptom than an actual disease, as it describes a disruption of muscle coordination resulting in this deficit. The disturbance differs from cerebellar ataxia in that with astasis the gait can be relatively normal, with balance significantly impaired during transition from a seated to standing position. This balance impairment is similar to patients with vestibulocerebellar syndrome, which is a progressive ...

The parasitism is a non-mutual symbiotic interaction, where one species, the parasite (sometime also call symbiont), is living at the expense of the other, the host. In general, a parasite does not kill its host, but lower its fitness (growth, fertility, longevity, …). In some case, these parasites obligatory kill their host to finalize its life cycle (the so-called parasitoids). Most of parasites of unicellular hosts (such as microalgae) are parasitoids. Parasites and parasitoids could be osmotrophic (they absorb nutrients from solution like fungi). Others are phagotrophic, meaning that they are able to directly ingest particulate matter by phagotrophy.. ...
