High resolution view of the E-face of the fractured collecting canal of the contractile vacuole showing its association with microtubular ribbons and with the smooth spongiome. The E-fracture face of the smooth spongiome is highly pitted like that of the collecting canal. Thin filaments lie between the microtubules and the collecting canal membrane. TEM taken on 7/19/88 by C. Schroeder with Zeiss 10A operating at 80kV. Neg. 40,500X. The raw film was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro. This image is best used for quantitative analysis.
