  P.T.K. Woo: Blood Flagellate Research Unit
Patrick Woo has always focused his research on the blood flagellates (Figs.
It is morphologically similar to the intestinal flagellate (Hexamita) in fish, and both parasites are closely related to the Giardia in mammals.
The parasite causes morbidity and mortality in fishes and there have been outbreaks of the disease in salmon cultured in sea cages - in chinook salmon on the west coast of Canada and in Atlantic salmon in Norway.

The animal s, fungi, and plant s are all derived from various lines of flagellates - something reflected by the presence of flagellate cells in most forms, whose ultrastructure is a useful guide to determining relationships.

 Tortoise Trust Web - Protozoan infections in Chelonians.
Symptoms of flagellate infection include poor appetite, diarrhoea, dehydration and (in the later stages) the passage of quantities of undigested food.
The most serious effect of a prolonged flagellate infection of pathogenic proportions is the severe 'scour' or depletion of natural G.I tract flora which usually results.
It is extremely important to stress that flagellates are not necessarily pathogenic, and indeed may have a useful function in aiding the digestion of cellulose material.

His attempts to find some developmental stage of the flagellates were fruitless, resulting always in a plate full of uniform cysts.
Since the development of paired flagella is a part of the Naegleria transformation from amoeba to flagellate, it seemed appropriate to look at the effects of inhibitors of flagellar regeneration in transforming amoebae.
