I finally found a Rotifer! This is a multicellular eukaryotic organism just like all animals, including us humans. This organism has about 1,000 cells and has a centralized nervous system like us, its brain is located above the mouth and it has nerves that extend throughout the body. It also has photoreceptor cells for vision, mouth, digestive system, anus, and reproductive organs. Females have ovaries and the males produce sperm. The front little hair like projections from the head are called cilia, which the rotifer uses to create a current in the water to pull the food towards its mouth and sift through it. ____________________________________________ These cilia are also present in all animals, including humans. They line our respiratory tract, sweeping up bacteria, mucus, and dust to the mouth where they will be swallowed and catabolized. In human females, they line the oviduct to help sweep the zygote towards the uterus. The cilia movement is produced from a bending of its core, called the axoneme. This core has 9 sets of doublet microtubules; one whole and one half. Microtubules are a hollow cylindrical structure made from two proteins in parallel. They have a weak bond, allowing them to assemble and disassemble very quickly for the cells needs. The motor protein Dynein, which is the larger than Kinesin and Myosin, is attached to these microtubules and also are these protein bridges. When the Dynein goes through a conformational change through ATP hydrolysis, it tries to slide the filaments past each other, but because of the bridges it can not, so in turn the microtubules bend and this is what causes the cilia to move. This same function is also what allows motility in our sperm. The motor protein Myosin is responsible for our muscular contractions, it is attached to the thick actin filament inside our sarcomeres, it pulls the thin filament towards the center, making the muscle shorten, allowing simple movements such as typing or your heart beating. —�—�—�—�—�—� Post Script This was from my neighbors dilapidated “pool”

This beer pours out golden light. It has a nice herbal scent. It is beer has a nice crisp finish with an herbal taste. It is a session beer but it tastes more like a saison. It can easily be paired with most food you would enjoy adding herbs to the cooking. Enjoy ice cold year round. Cheers #nesbitter #metazoa #metazoabrewingco #indianapolis #indiana #session

Happy #fossilfriday ! Here is one of the specimens on temporary return for Canadian researchers who will be visiting in November. These are bizarre animals. When they were first discovered in the late 1960s they were excitingly referred to as the conodont animal...and everyone was pretty stoked. The researchers named this guy “Scottognathus elizabethi” based on the conodont assemblages in the midgut (darker oval area). However, later research and the discovery of the actual conodont animal, found that this animal must have eaten conodonts. It was renamed “Typhloesus wellsi”. The dark circle below the midgut is an organ called the ferrodiscus due to its circular shape and substantial concentrations of iron. Currently, no one really understands this structure or the animal. This specimen was collected from the Mississippian aged Bear Gulch limestone of central Montana. ⚒ . . . #fossil #bizarre #metazoa #enigmatic #carboniferous #mississippian #beargulch #limestone #montana #conodont #enigmas #paleontology #research #science #naturalhistory #ancientlife #evolution

Hoje dia muito especial...dia daqueles que me acordam cedo,daqueles que por vezes nem me deixa dormir,daqueles que fazem chorar,daqueles que me completam e me fazem esquecer todos os meus problemas, daqueles que esperam anciosos chegar do trabalho, daqueles que ficam me olhando quando estou comendo,daqueles que nao me abandonam principalmente quando estou triste e fazem meus dias mais coloridos com seus lambeijos.
