The cytosol contains numerous vacuoles as well as symbiotic bacteria (see Heckmann, Int. Rev. Cytol. 14(suppl.):111-143, 1983 for a discussion of symbiotic bacteria in Euplotes). TEM taken on 7/24/67 by R. Allen with Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 7,200X. Bar = 1?m. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol, and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. A print of the negative was scanned and processed in Photoshop. This image is best used for qualitative analysis. A high resolution version of this image is in the library (CIL:38870) is in the library and available for quantitative analysis.
