...Yutaka Naitoh; Takashi Tominaga; Richard D. Allen ABSTRACT The precise relationship between the rate of contractile vacuole fluid discharge and the vacuole diameter at the start of systole was determined in cells of Paramecium multimicronucleatum subjected to various external conditions. The rate...

... observed in intact colonies. Transmission electron micrographs reveal a unique organelle, with characteristics of a contractile vacuole, in the apical stolonal endoderm. The activity of this organelle, inferred from static observations, correlates with the observed pattern of stolonal contractions...
