Other studies suggest that TRPM, along with TRPA and TRPC, has evolved later in the unikont lineage, as it is present in the genomes of the choanoflagellates Monosiga brevicollis and Salpingosea rosetta, representing the last unicellular ancestor of Metazoa (Mederos y Schnitzler et al.
In the new vision--based on increasingly sophisticated genetic analyses--people and other animals are closer cousins to single-celled choanoflagellates than to other multicellular organisms.
Recently, integrins and other components of the integrin-mediated adhesion and signalling machinery have been identified in unicellular organisms; such as in the filasterean Capsaspora owczarzaki, a close relative of metazoans and choanoflagellates.
By this means it was revealed that all the flagella and cilia in animals including sponges, Mesozoa and choanoflagellates showed the twoheaded outer arm profile.
Choanoflagellates are one-celled eukaryotes that are the closest relatives of animals (Figure 2).
Free-living, unicellular organisms called choanoflagellates, however, could be on every person's family tree, so long as it was a gigantic one.

These data support the view that all animals are derived from choanoflagellates, but cannot differentiate between single or multiple origins of multicellularity.
However, [alpha] and [beta] integrin subunits were subsequently identified in the protist Capsaspora owczarzaki, revealing an ancient origin for these receptors predating the appearance of animals and their selective loss in choanoflagellates (Sebe-Pedros et al.
In that scenario, colonies of single-celled organisms called choanoflagellates gave way to multicellular predecessors of sponges; millions of years later, an offshoot of these organisms formed nerve cells.
A study of choanoflagellates, which are unicellular protists that resemble the collar cells of sponges, suggests that they also have both these important tools.
One of the best studied groups of heterotrophic flagellates is the choanoflagellates.
