What is an ameoba model
The ameoba model is an animal model of the ameoba subclass Proteomorpha, which is widely distributed all over the world. It mainly lives in clear water ponds, or in shallow waters with slow water flow and more algae. It can also be found in general soil, and can also become parasites in other organisms. It is a single-celled protozoan consisting of only one cell, which can change its body shape as needed, hence the name amoeba. The ameoba model has no tough surface membrane, only a thin plasma membrane. The membrane contains a relatively transparent cytoplasm, which can be clearly divided into two parts: endoplasmic and ectoplasmic.
The ameoba model belongs to the class of the protozoa Carpodia. It is composed of a single cell and has a tiny body. The largest amoeba has a body diameter of only 600μm. The structure of the ameoba model is very simple, so simple that there are no organs for movement, and it only depends on extension. Exercise in a way that the pseudofoot changes the shape of the body.
When the ameoba model moves on a solid surface, one or more pseudopods are stretched forward, and part of the protoplasm in the body is moved into the pseudopods. The protoplasm behind also shrinks and continues to replenish the flowing protoplasm, and the whole cell gradually Move to the front. This is how the ameoba model relies on the flow of protoplasm in the cell to move forward and capture food. Therefore, the movement of the amoeba relies on pseudopods.
