The influence of fission line expression on the number and positioning of oral primordia in the cdaA1 mutant of Tetrahymena thermophila

10.1002/dvg.1020130307.abs During cytokinesis, furrowing creates new boundaries for daughter cells. Following a shift to a restrictive temperature, cells of the temperature‐sensitive cell‐division‐arrest (cdaA1) mutant of Tetrahymena thermophila complete development of the oral apparatus for the prospective posterior daughter cell before becoming arrested in cytokinesis. When maintained under weak restrictive conditions (35°C), some of the chains were arrested prior to the start of fission line formation (D‐shaped chains), whereas others manifested rudimentary unilateral furrowing on the ventral side (B‐shaped chains). In their second cell cycle following the temperature shift, the D‐shaped chains usually formed only one oral primordium, at a position highly correlated with the length of the entire chain. The B‐shaped chains always produced two separate oral primordia, located at irregular positions anterior and posterior to the division furrow, often close to the posterior oral apparatus produced during the first cycle. These results suggest that the formation of the fission line sets a reference boundary to assess the number of oral primordia and influence their position, that appear during subsequent morphogenetic episodes. They also indicate that, during cell division cycles, pre‐existing oral apparatuses do not strongly inhibit the formation of new oral apparatuses in their close vicinity. © 1992 Wiley‐Liss, Inc. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Genesis: The Journal of Genetics and Development Wiley
