Moreover, we were able to stably maintain the in vitro growth of seven species of ciliates: Euplotes aediculatus, Euplotes eurystomus, Paramecium bursaria, Paramecium caudatum
, Spirostomum minus, Spirostomum teres and Tetmemena pustulata.
monoculture activity by gas production technique: The rumen fluid was collected just before morning feeding from the same rumen cannulated animals as used for preparing E.
; son tambien constantes Vaccinium cubensis (a veces abundante), Clerodendrum nipense, Lyonia macrophylla, Psychotria revoluta, Ossaea pauciflora, Vernonia pineticola, Miconia baracoensis, Casearia aquifolia e Ilex macfadyenii.
E2's amplified COX DNA showed 99.1% pairwise identity (838/846 bases) with a published Paramecium caudatum
Preliminary study on the requirement of Entodinium exiguum and Entodinium caudatum
for live or dead bacteria when cultured in vitro.
, the apical cell of the filament divided crosswise to form two unequal cells whose function was to form a meristematic cell from which the plate phase will later develop (Fig.
) taken from the colony maintained in the laboratory.
Maximum likelihood estimates (MLEs) and 95% confidence intervals for the parameters of the Lotka-Volterra competition model fitted to Gause's data on Paramecium caudatum
(species 1) and P.
Acute toxicity bioassay using Paramecium caudatum
, a key member to study the effects of monocrotophos on swimming behaviour, morphology and reproduction.
Among the ciliate species found in Sao Pedro Stream, 18 are included in the sabrobic system and are considered bioindicators: Caenomorpha sp., Lagynus sp., Loxodes striatus (Eugelmann, 1862) Penard, 1917, Metopus sp., Paramecium caudatum
Ehrenberg, 1838, Plagiopyla sp.
Lines derived from crosses between Zera-zera and Kafir or Caudatum
were grouped together in a single cluster close to the Kafir cluster by all the marker sets except Matrix I.
