All of the observed VLPs were icosahedral and 175-335 nm in diameter. Some of the host cells had apparent food vacuoles indicating that they were phagotrophic. These observations suggest that viral multiplication may effect the dynamics of unicellular apochlorotic microorganisms including heterotrophic nanoflagellates (HNF), grazers of bacteria. 关键词: VIRUS-LIKE PARTICLES; FOOD WEBS; VIRAL MORTALITY; APOCHLOROTIC MICROORGANISMS; PHAGOTROPHS; HETEROTROPHIC NANOFLAGELLATE MICROORGANISMS; PHAGOTROPHS; HETEROTROPHIC NANOFLAGELLATE; AQUATIC ENVIRONMENTS; PARTNERS
