  • Hello everyone, I will show you one of the most fundamental parts of a freshwater single-celled organisms. It's called contractile vacuole which allows unicellular organisms to expel excess water out of the cell, just like a pump.
    .
    Pump it, pump it, pump it! 💦
    .
    Single-celled organisms are covered with a membrane and inside this membrane there is a gel-like fluid which contains a lot of dissolved substances, more than the surrounding water contains. Concentration of this dissolved substances inside the cell is different than the surrounding water and they are separated by the cell membrane which only allows certain things to pass through it passively. This imbalance between the concentrations causes water to fill the cell to attain equilibrium.
    .
    Which means in freshwater organisms water tries to fill the cells constantly but those simple cells contain this contractile vacuole to fight with the water pressure. If the contractile vacuoles won't work, cells would get swollen until they explode.
    .
    This little handy pump accumulates the water which fills the cell and during this time, contractile vacuole swells and later on it discharges the water out of the cell through a pore and the pore closes when the water has been discharged. And it happens again and again, all the time.
    .
    Again, pump it, pump it, pump it! 💦
    .
    I put a little arrow to show you the contractile vacuole when it swells and discharge the water. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for reading. ❤️
