DIVERSITUY OF PROTF
It is a parasite living in animals. It is small with about 15µm. It has two haploid nuclei
making look like a face. It has no mitochondria are capable of fermenting sugar to produce
energy. They do not have lysosomes and peroxisomes. They inhibit the digestive system of
animals. They feed through digestion and absorption. This taxon causes a significant health issue
such as diarrhea. An example of diplomonad includes Giardia lamblia.
They are arranged near the cell interior. They are single-celled without mitochondria.
They also lack peroxisomes. However, they have specialized organelles. They bread through
mitosis. They have a nuclear envelope and extra-nuclear spindle. Their significance is to cause
sexually transmitted disease in the human body. An example of Parabasalid include Trichomonas
They are paddle-shaped with discoidal mitochondrial cristae. Have closed mitosis and has
an intranuclear spindle. Kinetoplastids have a clump that has DNA referred to as the kinetoplast.
Euglenids have plasma membrane on their cell service. This membrane is known as the pellicle.
Kinetoplastids are widespread. Have mitochondria DNA its size may be from 10-100 microns
and below 20 microns in width. They have the paraflagellar rod. They have a Golgi apparatus.
They include the trypanosomatids. Eugenides are free-living. There are more than one thousand
species of euglenids. They have paddle-shaped mitochondria, Golgi bodies, flagellar appa...
