Taste and Smell in Acanthamoeba Feeding
Languages of publication
The ability to detect food in the environment is an essential function among all living organisms and must have arisen at the beginning of life. The anatomical, morphological and molecular features involved in taste and smell may differ among disparate groups, but the principle of chemoreception is conserved. Here we debate the sense of taste and smell in the feeding behaviour of the unicellular protist, Acanthamoeba.
