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. The raw negative was scanned with an Epson Perfection V750 Pro and this high resolution image is best used for quantitative analysis.
