A high resolution image of a longitudinal microtubular ribbon sandwiched between the alveoli and the epiplasm in the crest of the pellicular ridge. A parasomal sac, the distal end of basal body, the proximal end of cilium, a mucocyst, and mitochondrion are all visible in this micrograph. TEM taken on 1/12/71 by M. Aihara with Hitachi HU11A operating at 75kV. Neg. 17,000X. The raw film was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro. This image is best used 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. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
