Waveform Analysis

These movies provide the Supplementary information for the paper Gadelha et al. (2007) Cell Motility and the Cytoskeleton 64:629-643.
Supplementary movie 1
Fast-capture movie of freely motile Crithidia deanei during flagellar beating, recorded over a time period of 516 ms. Cell displacement speed: 31 µm s-1. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.

Supplementary movie 2
Transformed fast-capture movie of Crithidia deanei. Supplementary movie 1 was transformed to remove the cell displacement, resulting in a cell that is ‘swimming on the spot’. Ruler marks are spaced by 10 µm. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
thumb
Supplementary movie 3
Transformed fast-capture movie of Crithidia fasciculata during flagellar beating. Ruler marks are spaced by 10 µm. Cell displacement speed: 70 µm s-1. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
thumb
Supplementary movie 4
Transformed fast-capture movie of Leishmania major during flagellar beating. Ruler marks are spaced by 10 µm. Cell displacement speed: 47 µm s-1. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
thumb
Supplementary movie 5
Fast-capture movie of freely motile Leishmania major during flagellar beating in which waves are initiated at points other than the flagellum end. Cell displacement speed: 26 µm s-1. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
thumb
Supplementary movie 6
Transformed fast-capture movie of Crithidia deanei during flagellar and ciliary beating. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
thumb
Supplementary movie 7
Transformed fast-capture movie of Crithidia fasciculata during flagellar and ciliary beating. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
thumb
Supplementary movie 8
Transformed fast-capture movie of Leishmania major during flagellar and ciliary beating. Playback speed: 1/24 x real time.
