ANALYSIS OF THE REACTION RESULTS OF THE STUDY THERMOTAXIS PARAMECIUM CAUDATUM
Deals with the effect of temperature on the motor activity of ciliates Paramecium caudatum under heavy and slow her change. It is shown that infuory slurry accumulates in temperatures close to the temperature of the cell culture and membrane hyperpolarization increases directional navigation speed. Thus, at extremely high and low temperatures, ciliates thermoregulation mechanisms may be different from those that are present at physiological temperatures. Conducted a literature review revealed the scientific studies that have been studied thermotaxis impact on the effect of hypoxia, which led to the movement of ciliates population to low temperatures.
