Rate of phagocytosis by microstomes (number of DVs per 6 min) | 3.9±0.1 (3) | 0.2±0.2 (3) |

The rate of phagocytosis was measured as the number of digestive vacuoles(DVs) formed.

In all experiments, the concentration of *Tetrahymena thermophila*was 10^{5} cells ml^{-1}.

In each experiment, 100 cells were counted.

Data are expressed as the mean ± S.E.M. (*N*).

Cytochalasin B concentration was 10 μg ml^{-1}.
