Th e reorganization of the macronucleus from the vegetative micronucleus is described in Epistylisarticulata(Ciliophora , Peritricha) . Individuals which have accidentally been deprived of amacronucleus during binary fission develop a new on e from the micronucleus . In such amacronucleate animals , the micronucleus divides into two , one of them growing into amacronucleus , the other remaining as the micro - nucleus . The phenomenon throws new light on the relative importance of the two parts of the ciliate nuclear apparatus and brings into greater emphasis the undiflfer -entiated nature of the micronucleus . It also establishes the possibility of denovo synthesis of DNA in the developing macronuclea rrudiment .
