Comments Map of the mitochondrial genome of the jakobid Reclinomonas americana. Red type denotes idenitified protein-coding genes that were only known from jakobid mitochondrial genomes. The genes rpoA, rpoB, rpoC and rpoD encode subunits of eubacterial-type (α2ββ’) RNA polymerase.

Scientific Name Jakobida
Comments Some jakobids, as they appear by light microscopy. Note that the cells are drawn in different orientations - Jakoba libera is shown with the ventral side (defined by the groove) on the left. Andalucia incarcerata is shown in ventral view (looking into the ventral groove). In Reclinomonas americana the groove opens upwards (the cell 'reclines' on its dorsal side). Histiona aroides is shown roughly in ventral view. Jakoba libera is drawn in feeding position, in which the hooked portion of the anterior flagellum would adhere to the substrate. Note the loricae of Reclinomonas and Histiona, by which they attach more permanently to the substrate.

Comments Conceptual reconstruction of the flagellar apparatus. Note that only the region immediately around the flagellar bases is shown (at the top of the groove)—all of the microtubular structures extend beyond the diagram.

Body Part ABB - anterior basal body, PBB posterior basal body, LR - left microtubular root, RR - right microtubular root, S - singlet microtubule, F - Dorsal fan of microtubules, A,B,I - various non-microtubular fibres associated with the right root, C - Non microtubular fibre associated with the dorsal side of the left root.

Comments In all figures 'ventral' is towards the bottom of the page, and dorsal towards the top. 3. Transverse section of the anterior portion of the groove, showing the right microutubular root (RR) supporting the groove margin. Note the other microtubules supporting the floor of the groove. Note also the transverse section of the posterior flagellum (PF) with the single vane on its dorsal side. N: Nucleus. 4. Left margin of the anterior end of the feeding groove showing a transverse section of the mult-layered 'C' fibre that supports the dorsal side of the left microtubular root (LR). The microtubules of the LR are cut through obliquely in this section, and cannot be individually distinguished. 5. Longitudinal section of part of the posterior flagellum (PF) showing the proximal portion of the dorsal vane.
