Transcript

  • 1. Animal-like Protists
  • 2. Core Concepts
    • Animal-like protists usually are unicellular eukaryotic organisms. The absence of choroplasts and chlorophyll distinguishes these organisms from plant-like protists. Most protozoans are microscopic in nature and are seen usually in freshwater environment.
  • 3.
    • There are four major groups of protists based primarily on their modes of locomotion/movement: ciliophora (cilia-bearing), zoomastigina (flagella-bearing), sporozoa (in fluids as parasites) and sarcodina (with pseudopodia)
  • 4.
    • Different modes of reproduction are present in animal-like protists namely: binary/longitudinal fission, conjugation and fragmentation. Animal muticellularity also evolved in one of these groups exemplified by the choanoflagellate.
  • 5. Movement is key to Identification
    • THERE IS NO PROTOZOAN THAT IS NOT MOTILE!!!!!
  • 6. PROTOZOAN VS METAZOAN
    • Proto- first; Zoa- animal
    • Meta – after; zoa- animal
  • 7. Keywords
    • Ciliophora anal pore choanoflagellate
    • Cilliate food vacuole sarcodina
    • Cilium/cilia contractile vacuole pseudopod
    • Paramecium Zoomastigina amoeba
    • Trichocyst flagellum/flagella vector
    • Macronucleus flagellate host
    • Micronucleus sporozoa conjugation
    • Gullet pellicle binary fission
  • 8. Phylogeny
    • Most recent ancestral stock of members of Animal Kingdom
    • Genetic make-up is not the basis
      • What characteristic was used?
  • 9.  
  • 10.  
  • 11. Protozoa
      • No cell wall
      • Have one motile stage
      • Mostly ingest food
      • Unicellular
      • Niche is limited
      • At least 10000 species are symbionts
  • 12.  
  • 13. Locomotion
  • 14. Cilia and Flagella
    • Axoneme- made up of 9 external pairs surrounding an internal pair
      • Outside the cell
    • Kinetosome- internal part of both structures
  • 15. Pseudopodia- an extension for movement
  • 16. Other forms of Pseudopodia
    • Lobopodia- large and blunt extensions
    • Filopodia- thin and usually branching
    • Reticulopodia- forms a net-like mesh
    • Axopodia- long and thin, supported by axial rods of microtubule
      • Homework: what are the different classifications of Sarcodines? Give examples.
  • 17. Nutrition-Phagocytosis vs Pinocytosis
    • Holozoic feeders, or phagotrophs , ingest particles of food.
      • Food vacuole – the membrane-bound vesicle containing the food.
      • Food vacuoles fuse with lysosomes containing digestive enzymes.
  • 18. Nutrition
    • Often, the site of phagocytosis is a definite mouth structure, the cytostome .
  • 19. Nutrition
    • Saprozoic feeding (ingestion of soluble food) may be by pinocytosis or by transport of solutes across the cell membrane.
  • 20. Excretion and Osmoregulation
    • Contractile vacuoles function in osmoregulation and excretion
    • More common in freshwater
  • 21. Trichocyst
    • Organelle in ciliates and dinoflagellates that releases a filamentous and netlike protein to trap food
  • 22. Reproduction
    • Fission is the cell multiplication process in protozoa.
      • Binary fission – one individual splits into two equal sized individuals.
      • Budding – progeny cell much smaller than parent.
      • Multiple fission – multiple nuclear divisions followed by multiple cytoplasmic divisions producing several offspring.
  • 23. Reproduction
    • All of above accompanied by some form of mitosis.
      • Mitosis in protozoa divisions varies from metazoan mitosis.
        • Nuclear membrane often persists.
        • Spindle may form within the nuclear membrane.
        • Centrioles not observed in ciliates.
        • Macronucleus of ciliates elongates, constricts, and divides without mitosis (amitosis).
  • 24. Reproduction
    • Many types of protists reproduce sexually as well as asexually.
      • Isogametes – all look alike.
      • Anisogametes – two different types.
    • Syngamy – gametes from two individuals fuse to form the zygote.
    • Autogamy – gametes from one individual fuse.
    • Conjugation – gametic nuclei are exchanged.
  • 25. Cysts
    • Many protists are able to survive harsh conditions through the formation of cysts , dormant forms with resistant outer coverings and a shutdown of metabolism.
  • 26. Major Protozoan Taxa
    • After the eukaryotic cell evolved, diversification followed, resulting in many clades.
      • Opisthokonta is a very large clade characterized by a combination of flattened mitochondrial cristae and one posterior flagellum on flagellated cells.
        • Includes animals, fungi, chaonoflagellates and microsporidians.
  • 27. Stramenopila
    • The clade Stramenopila includes several groups of heterotrophs as well as certain groups of algae.
      • Most stramenopiles have a “hairy” flagellum paired with a “smooth” flagellum.
  • 28. Stramenopila
    • Water molds, diatoms, golden algae, brown algae.
  • 29. Euglenozoa
    • Phylum Euglenozoa is a diverse clade that includes predatory heterotrophs, photosynthetic autotrophs, and pathogenic parasites. Kinetoplastids & Euglenids.

  • 30. Euglenids
    • Euglenids have one or two flagella that emerge from a pocket at one end of the cell.
      • Contain chloroplasts surrounded by a double membrane – may have arisen by secondary endosymbiosis.
  • 31. Kinetoplastids
    • Kinetoplastids have a single, large mitochondrion that contains an organized mass of DNA called a kinetoplast.
      • Include free-living consumers of bacteria in freshwater, marine, and moist terrestrial ecosystems.
      • Others are parasitic.
