The basic structural features of bacteriophages are illustrated in Figure 1, which depicts the phage called T4. Size T4 is among the largest phages; it is approximately nm long and nm wide.

Other phages are smaller. Most phages range in size from nm in length. The most common parasitic infection • Faecal specimens may contain several stages of Parasites • The stages of protozoa found in stools are trophozoites and cysts Introduction to Parasites: Classification, General Characteristics of parasites and Medically important Parasites.

These are of fewer kinds; examples include the trichocysts of Paramecium (a free-living ciliate), various skeletal structures, and, perhaps, the contractile vacuoles.

Some of these organelles will now be considered in a little more J.

Many protozoal parasites are taken into the body in the cyst form. Most protozoa have a single nucleus, but some have both a macronucleus and one or more micronuclei. Contractile vacuoles may be present in protozoa to remove excess water, and food vacuoles are often observed.

Nutrition and locomotion. Jan 24,  · Morphology of protozoa 1. Parasite is defined as an animal or plant that lives in or upon another organism (Host) and draws its nutrient directly from it.

E.g include Bacteria, Viruses, Fungi, Protozoas and helminths. Study of parasite is known as Parasitology. Medical Parasitology is the study of animal parasite that infect and produce diseases in humans.

Use features like bookmarks, note taking and highlighting while reading Intracellular Parasitic Protozoa (Ultrastructure of cells and organisms).Cited by: Protozoa (also protozoan, plural protozoans) is an informal term for single-celled eukaryotes, either free-living or parasitic, which feed on organic matter such as other microorganisms or organic tissues and debris.

Historically, the protozoa were regarded as "one-celled animals", because they often possess animal-like behaviors, such as motility and predation, and lack a cell wall, as found. Parasitic protozoa are classified mainly into four groups.

They are: (a) Rhizopoda (Plasmodroma): The organisms of this group move by producing pseudo­podia. They multiply by binary fission and form cysts, as in E.

All the members of this group are parasites. Examples: Plasmodium, the malarial parasites of animals and human beings. Types of Protozoa. Helminths of importance in the sanitation field are the human parasites, and are classified as Nemathelminthes (nematodes) and Platyhelminthes, depending on whether they possess a round or flattened body, respectively.

Ringworm (dermatophytosis) is actually caused by various fungi and not by a parasitic worm. Reproduction and life cycle. Updated and much expanded, the Second Edition of Parasitic Protozoa is designed to be useful to physicians, veterinarians, and research scientists concerned with diseases caused by protozoa in man, and in domestic and wild animals including fish, mollusks and insects, as well as the more commonly considered vertebrate animals.

Each section contains information on disease pathogens, treatment. Protozoan - Protozoan - Adaptations: For the most part, parasitic protozoans live in a fairly constant environment.

Temperature fluctuates very little, or not at all, inside the host, desiccation is not a risk, and food is in constant supply. Free-living protists, on the other hand, face short- or long-term changes in temperature, aquatic acidity, food supply, moisture, and light.

Many. The parasite is oval shaped and has flagella. It is a digenetic parasite. The first host is man or animal and the second host is an insect called tsetse fly. Giardia intesinalis: It resides in the small intestine and causes dysentery.

Balantidium coli: It is a ciliated protozoan living in the large intestine. Protozoan Parasites. Protozoa are unicellular organisms that feed on organic matter.

There are over 30 protozoan species but not all are parasites. Protozoa usually have flagella and thus can actively move. Protozoa are 10– µm long and can be seen microscopically. They usually consume food by surrounding it with their cell membrane. Introduction • Parasite is an organism baring food and shelter temporarily or permanent and living in or on another organism.

• The study of parasites is called Parasitology. • Parasites can be 1. Facultative parasite: parasites able to live both free living and parasite living e.g.
