Caption: Ultraviolet fluorescence light micrograph of single-cell desmids Micrasterias sp. Each cell is divided into two halves, separated by a narrow waist. Division of the desmid occurs by splitting in two at the waist, with each half generating a perfect replica of itself to restore the original shape. Both these cells show one half cell slightly smaller than the other, indicating that the new cells, following division, have not fully regrown. When exposed to ultraviolet light, chlorophyll, the light sensitive pigment contained within green algae, fluoresces intensely. The red coloured areas in this micrograph correspond to chlorophyll in the cell.
