Photomotile Responses in Gliding Organisms and Bacteria

Abstract

Gliding microorganisms displaying photomovement belong to the following groups: blue-green algae, diatoms, desmids, red algae, and myxomycetes (Table I). The speed of these gliding movements, compared with that of flagellates (100-250 μ;m/s), is relatively low (Table II). This is a disadvantage, if the duration of the experiments is concerned. On the other hand, the behaviour of single cells can easily be studied, reaction and presentation times can be measured and movement tracks can be drawn, without using high speed cinematography and other expensive equipment.
