canaleparolina darwiniensis, gen. nov., sp. nov., and other pillotinaceous spirochetes from insects.we describe two new pillotinaceous spirochetes (canaleparolina darwiniensis, diplocalyx cryptotermitidis) and identify for the first time hollandina pterotermitidis from both the subterranean termite cryptotermes cavifrons and the wood-eating cockroach cryptocercus punctulatus based on morphometric analysis of transmission electron micrographic thin sections. c. darwiniensis, gen. nov., sp. nov., limited to near darwin, australia, invariably is present on the surface of the treponeme-studded tri ...200011334304
devescovinid features, a remarkable surface cytoskeleton, and epibiotic bacteria revisited in mixotricha paradoxa, a parabasalid flagellate.this work reports on the flagellate systematics and phylogeny, cytoskeleton, prokaryote-eukaryote cell junction organisation, and epibiotic bacteria identification. it confirms the pioneer 1964 study on mixotricha paradoxa and supplies new information. mixotricha paradoxa has a cresta structure specific to devescovinid parabasalid flagellates, a slightly modified recurrent flagellum, and an axostylar tube containing two lamina-shaped parabasal fibres. however, many parabasal profiles are distrib ...200415726809
symbionts of the gut flagellate staurojoenina sp. from neotermes cubanus represent a novel, termite-associated lineage of bacteroidales: description of 'candidatus vestibaculum illigatum'.the symbioses between cellulose-degrading flagellates and bacteria are one of the most fascinating phenomena in the complex micro-ecosystem found in the hindgut of lower termites. however, little is known about the identity of the symbionts. one example is the epibiotic bacteria colonizing the surface of hypermastigote protists of the genus staurojoenina. by using scanning electron microscopy, it was shown that the whole surface of staurojoenina sp. from the termite neotermes cubanus is densely ...200415256565
bacterial ectosymbionts which confer motility: mixotricha paradoxa from the intestine of the australian termite mastotermes darwiniensis. 200616623390
ectobiotic spirochetes of flagellates from the termite mastotermes darwiniensis: attachment and cyst formation.the association of the gut flagellates mixotricha paradoxa and deltotrichonympha sp. from the termite mastotermes darwiniensis with ectobiotic spirochetes and bacterial rods is investigated with light and electron microscopy. treatment with different chemicals disturbing molecular interactions and use of the freeze-fracture and freeze-etch technique show that hydrophobic interactions and integral membrane proteins seem to be involved in the firm attachment at the contact sites. application of an ...200717764914
