Stramenopila and its Types

l      Includes heterotrophs and various groups of photosynthetic protists

l      Major characteristic: hairlike projections on the flagella
l      Only reproductive cells are flagellated
l      One smooth and one “hairy” flagellum
l      Oomycota, Bacillariophyta (diatoms), chrysophyta (golden algae), Phaephyta (brown algae)
l      Oomycota- water molds, white rusts, downy mildews = heterotrophic stramenopiles  
l      Resemble fungi in appearance but not closely related
l      Cell walls made of cellulose
l      Predominant diploid stage
l      Biflagellated cells
l      Filamentous body plans to absorb nutrients
l      Large egg cell and smaller sperm
l      Water molds=important decomposers in aquatic ecosystems

l      Bacillariophyta- diatoms- unicellular marine and freshwater plankton
l      Boxlike silica walls, glassy
l      Asexual reproduction however eggs and sperm produced also
l      Food- glucose polymer, laminarin

l      Chrysophyta- golden algae- yellow and brown carotene and xanthophyll accessory pigments
l      Unicellular, biflagellated
l      Marine and freshwater plankton
l      Some are mixotrophic
l      When population becomes too high, many species form long-lasting cysts 

l      Phaeophyta- brown algae- largest and most complex algae
l      Color due to accessory pigments in their plastids

Enhanced by Zemanta


l      Ciliates- use cilia to move and feed.
l      Coordinated by submembrane system of microtubules (widespread or clumped)
l      Complex unicellular organisms found in fresh water
l      Two types of nuclei:
l      large macronucleus which controls everyday functions. Has 50 or more copies of genome. Splits during binary fission
l      Small micronuclei are exchanged in a process called conjugation. Provide for genetic recombination.

Life Cycle of Plasmodium, protest that causes Malaria

l      Apicomplexans- animal parasites, complex life cycles (sexual and asexual stages and several host species)
l      Spread by tiny infectious cells called sporozoites
l      Cause malaria

What is a Protist?

l      Kingdom Protista has been split into as many as 20 Kingdoms
l      Most protists are unicellular.
l      Most protists are aerobic.  Some are photoautotrophs (contain chloroplast), heterotrophs (absorbing organic molecules or ingesting larger food molecules), or mixotrophs (combine photosynthesis and heterotrophic nutrition)
l      Can divide protists into three categories: ingestive/protozoa (animal-like), absorptive (fungus like), and photosynthetic/algae (plantlike)
l      Most protists are motile, having cilia or flagella at some point.  These structures are extensions of the cytoplasm.

• Cercozoa
• Amoeba

• Diplomonadida
