the wet mount. The Paramecia was clear while each plant cell was clearly green due to the chloroplast in each cell. (c)Relate any cellular functions/processes you observed by discussing what you know about these – how they work, what molecules might be involved, etc. The movement of the Paramecia in the wet mount was caused by pili that surround the cell membrane. This movement would of been caused by the phosphorylation of the pili’s end inside the cell with ATP, causing the pili to move and then return to its natural state when the ATP falls off. The pili work like a grappling hook and grab whatever is near by to move the cell in a jerky motion.
