Endosymbiosis is a primary force in eukaryotic cell evolution. In order to understand the molecular mechanisms involved in this mutualistic relationship, experiments to reproduce endosymbiosis are indispensable. The ciliate qParameciumq is an ideal host for performing such studies. Topics presented in this volume are: the origins of algal and bacterial symbionts in qParameciumq, the diversity of endosymbiotic bacteria, such as qHolosporaq bacteria and especially qChlorellaq species, as well as the infection and maintenance processes. The metabolic control, the regulation of circadian rhythms and photobiological aspects of the mutualistic association, as well as the killer effect of qParameciumq and its causative agents are further points discussed.The divergence of the Chlorella clade, including the a€œAmerican, a€ a€œEuropean, a€ and CCAP 1660/10 algal symbionts remains ... 3 ITS2 structural diagram of Chlorella vulgaris type strain Origins of Algal Symbionts of Paramecium bursaria 15.
