Some Experiments on the Movement of the Myxomycete Plasmodium

By Chikako Fujiki, 千賀子 藤木 and チカコ フジキ


1. Glycerinated models of microplasmodia of the Myxomycete, Physarum polycephalum, were prepared and contraction induced by ATP was investigated. 2. The contraction rate rose with time of incubation of microplasmodia. 3. Microplasmodia changed their areas and adhered actively onto agar by the end of 15 min incubation. 4. Number of streaming microplasmodia increased with time on agar. 5. Myosin B could not be isolated from microplasmodia. 6. It has been suggested that contractile systems were reorganized in microplasmodia with time
