An electron micrograph of a thin frozen section treated with a clone of the mAb (D40-2) used to show the A4 antigen on decorated tubules. The immunogold lies along the outer margin of these tubules for the most part. Mitochondria are not labeled. TEM taken on 2/10/93 by R. Allen with Zeiss 10A operating at 80kV. Neg. 19,800X. Bar = 0.2?m. The negative was printed to paper and the image was scanned to Photoshop. This digitized image is available for qualitative analysis. An unprocessed, high resolution version of this image (CIL:13122) is in the library and available for quantitative analysis. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness.
