Motility Rhythms in Cultured Zooxanthellae Isolated from the Scyphomedusa Linuche Unguiculata
Abstract:Motility in algal symbionts isolated from a number of invertebrate hosts is characterized by a circadian rhythmicity the pattern of which varies with each species of alga. Motility in cultures of algal isolates from Linuche unguiculata which have not been previously studied occurs with a 24-h rhythmicity under 12-h light, 12-h dark cycles. The persistence of the rhythm under regimes of continuous light or dark supports our hypothesis that the rhythm is circadian.
