Description

The nuclear envelope of both the macronucleus, seen here, and the micronucleus consists of 2 membranes containing numerous perforations called pores. Proteins are imported through these pores and ribosomal subunits are transported out of the macronucleus through the same pores. TEM taken on 8/16/67 by R. Allen with a Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 12,400X. Bar = 0.5µm. The negative was printed to paper and the image was scanned to Photoshop. This digitized image is available for qualitative analysis. An unprocessed, high resolution version of this image (CIL:34536) is in the library and available for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).

Technical Details

Standard glutaraldehyde fixation followed by osmium tetroxide, dehydrated in alcohol and embedded in an epoxy resin. Microtome sections prepared at approximately 75nm thickness. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
