Abstract

SUMMARY: A bead column technique is described for the separation of flagellates from amoebae and cysts. It is shown that DO induces a rapid reversion of these flagellates to amoebae, and the behaviour and structure of the reverting cells is described. The amoebae are viable in high concentrations of DO, and when returned to suspension in HO readily retransform to the flagellate stage. The reversion of flagellates to amoebae is insensitive to cycloheximide, but the subsequent retransformation to flagellate can be prevented by both actinomycin D and cycloheximide.
