Cell body morphogenesis of a promastigote and trypomastigote through the cell cycle
Cell growth is indicated by arrows with a perpendicular bar (siehe Symbol "Growth" unten links), the bar indicates the region that grows. Cell remodelling is indicated by barb-headed arrows. The path of furrow ingression (Einschnürung der Teilungsfurche) is indicated by dashed arrows. The old and new flagellum are coloured red and turquoise respectively. A. Summary of the morphological changes of an example liberform (promastigote L. mexicana) through the cell cycle. The cell grows in length, then remodels the cytoskeleton during cytokinesis. B. Summary of the morphological changes of an example juxtaform (trypomastigote procyclic T. brucei) through the cell cycle. The cell first grows in length then in width prior to cytokinesis.
