A high resolution image of a cortical monokinetid showing the basal body as well as postciliary and transverse microtubular ribbons. Slender endosomal vesicles accumulate near the bottom of a parasomal sac which is located out of the plane of section, and a round mucocyst lies adjacent to the basal body. 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 5/25/69 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 14,500X. The raw film was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro. This high resolution image is suitable for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
