View of the packed layer of mitochondria just under the dorsal pellicle of Euplotes is prominent. A row of eight cilia can be seen along one kinety arising from round to oval depressions in the cell’s surface. A grid bar was deleted on the left. TEM taken on 8/1/67 by R. Allen with Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 1,800X. Bar = 5?m. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol, and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. The negative was scanned and processed in Photoshop. This image is best used for qualitative analysis. A high resolution image is available in the library (CIL:38869) that can be used for quantitative analysis. Additional information is available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
