Accumulation of golgi cupulas near a food vacuole. The food vacuole shown has already fused with many vesicles that have already added their membrane as well as their dense inner lining to the vacuole lumen. TEM taken on 2/17/72 by R. Allen with Hitachi HU11A operating at 75kV. Neg. 19,500X. Bar = 0.5?m. The negative was printed to paper and the image was scanned to Photoshop. This digitized image is available for qualitative analysis. There is a high resolution version of this image in the library (CIL:39458) which is available for quantitative analysis.
