Unformatted text preview: Daphnia: Hydra: Stentor: Rotifer: Cell Motility • cilia = tiny hair-like structures made of microtubules o often cover entire cell surfaces (ex: Paramecium) o used for locomotion, moving food, etc (more purposes in multicelled orgs.) • flagella = made of microtubules, long and beat in wavelike manner o cells have one (ex: Euglena) or several (ex: Volvox) o used for propulsion o prokaryotic: spin instead of beating • pseudopod = “false feet” made of microtubules; ex: Amoeba o fcn like a snail moves (extends, then pulls body along) o can envelop prey in phagocytosis Plasmolysis • cellular shrinkage occurring bc of cell being exposed to hypertonic solution • water potential in hypotonic cell is >, so H 2 O flows out of central vacuole contents of cell shrink • opposite: cell expands due to extracellular fluid when placed in hypotonic sol....
