All Rights Reserved Microbiology - Core Concept Cheat Sheet 10: Eukaryotic Microbe Classification Key Microbiology Terms Algae: Usually reproduce by alternating generations in which a haploid thallus alternates with a diploid thallus. Chemoautotroph: Obtain nutrients by phagocytizing bacteria and organic matter in decay and tissues of hosts. Coenocytes : Multinucleate cells created by delaying cytokinesis, as can occur in some algae and fungi, following mitosis. Cyst: Hardy resting stage of protozoa having thick capsule and slow metabolism. Not a reproductive form. Cytokinesis : Cytoplasmic division usually occurs simultaneously with telophase of mitosis. In some algae and fungi this may be delayed. Gametocytes: Produced by some sexually reproducing protozoa that fuse to become diploid zygote. Hyphae: Are either septate (with cross walls) or aseptate depending on the presence of crosswalls. Kinetoplastids: Are euglenozoans with a large mitochondrion that has a kinetoplast.
