Didinium ingests Paramecium. Note that the Paramecium is folded in half as it is compressed and enters the waiting food vacuole. This micrograph also shows a few discharged Paramecium trichocysts as well as the metachronous waves of cilia in the two characteristic ciliary girdles of Didinium nasutum. This micrograph (www.cellimagelibrary.org/images/21995) was taken in 1968 by Gregory Antipa. It is in the public domain and thus free of any copyright restrictions. However, as is the norm in scientific publishing and as a matter of courtesy, any user should credit the content provider for any public or private use of this image whenever possible.

The Cell Image Library has now been accessed from 220 different countries, with Norfolk Island and the Cook Islands being the latest to join us. We have also had over 700,000 unique sessions.

Looking to find cell images on the go? Don’t forget to download the free Cell Image Library mobile app for iPhone and iPad. Just visit the App Store and search for “Cell Library.”

Don’t forget, if you are applying for a grant soon and need a Data Management Plan (DMP) be sure to contact us before submitting your application so we can help with your cellular images’ DMP.

The Cell Image Library (www.cellimagelibrary.org) is a freely accessible, easy-to-search, public repository of reviewed and annotated images, videos, and animations of cells. Portions of the Cell Image Library were developed by ASCB under a Grand Opportunities grant from the National Institute of General Medical Sciences and are now managed by the National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research under a perpetual license from ASCB.
