A high resolution micrograph showing the striated kinetodesmal fiber extending to the pellicle from the basal body where it terminates against the epiplasm. A bundle of microtubules extends into the cell’s cytosol from the basal body. Alveoli, parasomal sacs, mucocysts, and mitochondria are evident. TEM taken on 5/31/69 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 14,800X. The raw film was digitized by scanning with a Nikon Coolscan 9000ED. This image is suitable for quantitative analysis. Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections were prepared at approximately 75nm thickness.
