When a multinucleate cell of Bryopsis plumosa was collapsed by a physical wounding, the extruded protoplasm aggregated into numerous protoplasmic masses in sea water. A polysaccharide envelope which initially covered the protoplasmic mass was peeled off when a cell membrane developed on the surface of protoplast in 12 h after the wounding.

It’s the T-1000 of algae!  🙂

Click and read the whole article….great pics too!!

In a nutshell, ripping off their cell wall by preventing the creation of ergosterols isn’t necessarily an impediment.

After reading, I even wonder if they could fabricate a cell wall based on other sterols or otherwise work around this disturbance?
