An image that shows the extensive layer of cortical microtubules which lie under the pellicle and many other microtubules and mitochondria that form a mass in the cytosol. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. TEM taken on 7/24/67 by R. Allen with Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 12,400X. Bar = 0.5?m. A print of the negative was scanned and processed in Photoshop. This image is best used for qualitative analysis. A high resolution image (CIL:9707) is available for quantitative analysis.
