Abstract

The changes in cell surface morphology at pigment displacement and their relation to the kinetics and mechanisms of this motility were studied using swordtail erythrophores. Kinetics studies on a single pigment particle and its mass per cell indicated that pigment aggregation was different in its modality from pigment dispersion. Scanning Electron Microscopy studies disclosed that two phases of this movement were not in a reciprocal relationship with regard to the sequence of cell surfacial changes: Pigment aggregation was accompanied by squeezing of the cell peripheries and protrusion of the cell body, whereas pigment dispersion was accompanied by the formation of microvilli over the cell body and microprojections along the cell peripheries.
