At this stage many of the spores assume each a flagellate cilium, and so acquire power of more rapid locomotion.
These cells, called choanocytes, resemble independent animals of the Protozoa, known as flagellate Infusoria or Choanoflagellata.
Radial (monaxial) forms; nutrition saprophytic or holophytic, mostly one flagellate.
Other modifications are whip-like processes, or flagellate filaments, called vibracula, which constantly beat the water.
The cells of this group have the morphology of the flagellate cells (choanocytes) of sponges.
The endoderm has cylindrical cells, each one of which has a flagellate hair.
They flagellate themselves with their whips, and the strokes resound on their breasts.
This is contrition; the contrite heart may love to flagellate itself in love of Him who suffered sinless.
Active free-swimming movements are only met with in the case of the flagellate zoospores ( 142).
Most of the flagellate infusoria do just the reverse; they are anodically sensitive or positively galvanotactic.
flagellate flag·el·late (flāj'ə-lĭt, -lāt', flə-jěl'ĭt)
Relating to or caused by a flagellate organism.
Any of various protozoans of the subphylum Mastigophora that move by means of one or more flagella. Some flagellates can make food by photosynthesis (such as euglenas and volvox), and are often classified as green algae by botanists. Others are symbiotic or parasitic (such as trypanosomes). Flagellates are related to amoebas. Also called mastigophoran.
