In this image a portion of the true surface of the plasma membrane is exposed where the culture medium has been etched away. The IMPs of the plates can also be viewed less distinctly on the true surface of the cell. The edge of the fractured and removed E leaflet is visible. Fractured doublets of the axoneme of a cilium lie nearby. TEM taken on 6/4/91 by R. Allen with Zeiss 10A operating at 80kV. Neg. 31,500X. Bar = 0.2 ?m. There is a high resolution version of this image in the library (CIL:39315) which is available for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
