Cross sections of striated bands and infraciliary lattice arms. Filaments of the striated bands are less densely packed than the infraciliary lattice. Kinetodesmal fibers and postciliary microtubules are also cross sectioned and are seen to come to lie near each other in the lateral ridges. A linkage would provide additional strength to the kineties. The observer is looking at a cross section of the cell from the posterior toward the anterior of the cell. TEM taken on 6/28/69 by R. Allen with Philips 300 operating at 60kV. Neg. 36,500X.
Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. The raw negative was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro and this high resolution image is best used for quantitative analysis.
