Questions About Euglenophytes


Recommended Posts

In euglenophytes; firstly, by what mechanism is the water expelled from the contractile vacuole directed into the flagellum reservoir? Secondly, by what mechanism does the eyespot effect the cytoskeleton and, by extent, flagellum, to propel the cell towards light? 


Good question, just in case anyone else hasnt got a clue what your question is about here is a wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyespot_apparatus and then something from research gate which appears to address all the points in your question https://www.researchgate.net/publication/259985383_Structure_and_function_in_the_Euglenoid_eyespot_apparatus_The_fine_structure_and_response_to_environmental_changes you can request the full pdf if you wish.
