Up to three basal bodies have been seen in various stages of development near a mature basal body/cilium complex. In this micrograph 2 new basal bodies are present next to 2 cilia and 3 are forming next to the third complex. Developing basal bodies can reorient parallel to the older basal body before it has elongated completely. TEM taken on 8/14/67 by R. Allen with Philips 200 operating at 60kV. Neg. 19,200X. Bar = 0.2µm. The negative was printed to paper and the image was scanned to Photoshop. This digitized image is available for qualitative analysis. There is a high resolution version of this image in the library (CIL:39797) which is available for quantitative analysis. Additional information available at (http://www5.pbrc.hawaii.edu/allen/).
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/).
