This proenzyme is finally transported to the food vacuole
via endoplasmic reticulum/golgi system.
She is particularly interested in what genes Salmonella turns on "while within the food vacuole
Vacuoles were densely packed with particles that appeared to be constantly moving; vacuole size varied from that typical of food vacuoles
to large vacuoles that occupied most of the cell volume (expanded online Figure, panels B, D, and G, www.
The number of phagocytized beads was counted using a compound microscope, and the feeding rate was determined by graphing the number of food vacuoles
formed as a function of time.
Congo red makes food vacuoles
and digestion very pronounced when viewed under a compound microscope at ~100X magnification.
2) Bacteria are killed and broken down in the food vacuoles
, supplying protists with energy and nutrients.
The presence of green food vacuoles
inside the cells demonstrated that Z.
1999) reported zebra mussel sperm cells within food vacuoles
These results appear to conform with the conclusion that the upward orientation of Paramecium is strongly b iased by the torque resulting from the higher density of the posterior part of the organism; the increased density is mainly due to the accumulation of food vacuoles
(Fukui and Asai, 1985).
Blepharisma is occasionally cannibalistic (Giese 1973), a situation readily recognized by the distinctive pink food vacuoles
containing the pigment blepharismin that occur in cannibalistic individuals.
