High resolution image of the macronucleus of Coleps hirtus. Heterochromatin and nucleoli are seen as smaller and larger stained bodies, respectively, in the macronucleus. Many nuclear pores exist in the nuclear envelope.
The material was prepared by 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 5/23/69 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 7,650X. 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/).
