A view of the AZM with basal bodies in longitudinal section and cilia sectioned lengthwise. Bunches of microtubules reside below the basal bodies and lie close to the cytopharyngeal vesicles. TEM taken on 8/3/67 by R. Allen with Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 19,200X. Bar = 0.2?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. There is a high resolution version of this image in the library (CIL:39338) which is available for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
