PublicationsStrzyzewska-Jowko I, Jerka-Dziadosz M, Frankel J. 2003. Effect of alteration in the global body plan on the deployment of morphogenesis-related protein epitopes labeled by the monoclonal antibody 12G9 in tetrahymena thermophila. Protist 154(1):71-90.
Commentsjanus phenotype: partially reversed oral apparatus on the dorsal surface; two contractile-vacuole pore sets. Allelic (non-complementing) to janC-1, located on chromosome 1R. Can be recognized when alive as "flat" cells. Not temperature-sensitive. There is no evidence for any effect of eja1-1 on expression of janC.
