The infraciliary lattice in this quick-freeze deep-etched image consists of a meshwork of branching fibers composed of many subfibers. Basal bodies and trichocyst tips extend through the openings of the mesh. Individual metal-coated fibrils of the mesh average 11 nm in diameter and are closely interlaced and cross-linked to other fibrils. TEM taken on 5/27/92 by R. Allen with Zeiss 10A operating at 80kV. Neg. 9,780X. The raw negative was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro and this high resolution image is best used for quantitative analysis.
