single celled organism
(An informal term applied to any eukaryote that is not a plant, animal, or fungus. Most protists are unicellular, though some are colonial or multicellular. )
Evolution of Prokaryotes to Eukaryotes
Dr. Lynn Margulis comes up with the theory of Endosymbiosis
"Theory of Endosymbiosis"
A process in eukaryotic evolution in which a heterotrophic eukaryotic cell engulfed a photosynthetic eukaryotic cell, which survived in a symbiotic relationship inside the heterotrophic cell. And diversity produced by second endosymbiosis
Clade Diplomonadida
(Diplomonads= two monoploid)
-*parasitic, multiflagellated
-Ex.***Giardia intestinalis
(intestine's parasites)
-modified mitochondria
(No DNA, No E.T.S.,No enzyme)
- two haploid nuclei
Clade Parabasala
Ex. *Trichomonas Vaginalis
-sex transmitted
-undulating membrane
(a common inhabitat of the human vagina)
*Clade Euglenozoa
1) Euglenids
*genus Euglena
**Trypnosoma bruceii rhodesiense: cause ***Afr. sleeping sickness or Trypanosomiasis Carrier is Testse fly genus *Glossina
-clade Euglenozoa
-flagellum(animals part), chloroplast, *contractile vacuole, eye spot, ***Paramylon or Paramylum
_It's mixotrophic**
Contractile Vacuole
-In Euglena
-expell excess water
because it lives in hypotonic environment
" Osmoregulation"=water balance
In Euglena;
-Autotropic part is Chloroplasts(plants)
-Heterotropic part is absorbing food in the environment
Many species of the euglenid Euglena are autotrophic, but when sunlight is unavailable, they can become heterotrophic, absorbing organic nutrients from their environment
Eye spot in Euglena
-functions as a light shield
-possibly phototactic(light attract)
Paramylon or Paramylum in Euglena
-storage Carbohydrate peculiar to Euglenids
(sugar 's form Euglena photosynthesis)
Trypanosoma bruceii rhodesiense
-Cause Afr sleeping sickness
-Carrier is Testse fly genus Glossina
-morphologically identical to Trypanosoma bruceii gambiense
-Clade Euglenozoa
Mass of DNA in mitochondia
Clade Alveolata
- "Alveoli"
membrane–bounded sacs (alveoli) just under the plasma membrane involve in balance(support) and transprot substance in/ out
-have three groups
(Ex. Ceratium hirudinella-cause red tide)
(Ex.* Plasmodium that cause Malaria)
(Cilia is main structure)
(group 1 of clade Alveolata)
Ex. Ceratium hirundinella (creates red tide tampa)
-Can exist as heterotroph and autotroph
-cellulose plated outside of the shell
- food stored as starch
Apicomplaxa or Sporozoan
(group 2 of clade Alveolata)
-cause **Malaria
-a group of parasite***
(Cinchora- a tree that produce " Quinine" prolactic against Malaria)
300 millions new Malaria case every years
two types of Plasmodium
* cause Malaria
** Clade Alveolata
(group Apicomplexa)
1) Plasmodium falciparum
found in liver, and
RBC(red blood cell)
2) Plasmodium Vivax

-Carrier*** Female mosquitoes called
" Anopheles"
Cycle of Plasmodium
1)After Mosquito bite, the sporozoites get into human liver cells
2)Sporozoites(n) become "Merozoits(n)" infect in liver and RBC
3)Merozoits rupturing RBC coz chills and fever associated with Malaria are form
4) some Merozoits form gametocytes
5) Gametes form inside another Mosquito
6) fertilization in mosquito's degestive tract
to become zygote(2n)
7) Oocyst form in mosuito's gut and release Sporozoits again
Infectous cells in Female mosquito (Anopheles)
"Sexual form of parasites"
-Merozoits(n) formed gametocyte after burst into RBC cause chills and fever(Malaria)
at the tip of this organism have organelles that penetrates RBC (red blood cell)
(group 3 of clade Alveolata)
-Main structure is *cilia
(short, numerous, useful for locomotion movement, feeding)
-Ex. Paramecium multimicronucleate
-Have two type of nuclei
-* ciliates are some of the most complex of all cells
-Remember all structure of Paramecium
Macronuclei (type of nuclei in Ciliates)
-" Vegetative nucleus"
-control the everyday function of the cell
-necessary for asexual reproduction
(*** growth, Maintenance, Aseuxal reproduction*)
Micronuclei (type of nuclei in Ciliates)
-" reproductive nucleus"
in function by Conjugation***
-give rise to macronuclei
(sexual reproduction)
a sexual process which produce genetic variation
-occur in 1)Bacteria 2) Sprirogyra- need bridge
3)paramecium -changing micronuceli between two paramecium, then micronuclei become macronuclei
Asexual Reproduction in Paramecium
-called "Transverse fission"
-Paramecium gets skinny in the middle then split in two paramecium
Structures of Paramecium
(type> Ciliates)
(Clade> Alveolata)
1)contactile vacuole- get rid of excess water
2)food vacuole-hook up with Lysosome(have enzyme to digest food)
-food is engulfed into paramecium by **Phagocytosis
-thousand of cilia
-Oral groove
is near by cytostome(cell mouth)
-Cytoproct(undigested food inject out)
-Trichocysts(rod-like, use for defense Anchor)
