A high resolution image of a bundle of microtubules supporting the oral apparatus of Coleps. This micrograph shows the detail of microtubular cross-bridging within one of these rods. Microfibrillar bridges are located at 22nm intervals within the hexagonally packed microtubules. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. TEM taken on 5/29/69 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 63,750X. The raw film was scanned with a Nikon Coolscan 9000ED. This high resolution image is suitable for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
