Ultrastructural investigation of the microsporidium Nosema cuneatum (Microspora: Nosematidae) in the grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes (Orthoptera: Acrididae) with emphasis on mitosis



Ultrastructural investigation of the microsporidium Nosema cuneatum (Microspora: Nosematidae) in the grasshopper Melanoplus sanguinipes (Orthoptera: Acrididae) with emphasis on mitosis



European Journal of Protistology 23(1): 18-27



An ultrastructural study of N. cuneatum showed that stages in merogony and sporogony are apansporoblastic, occur in a diplocaryon arrangement and undergo binary fission. Nuclei are connected during karyokinesis in a dumbbell-like arrangement. Microtubules within the nucleus are either associated with the kinetochore or extend from spindle plaque to spindle plaque. Merogony stages in the host cytoplasm are surrounded by an intermittent layer.
