Description

The unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii has a pair of anterior flagella that function in motility. In this image, the base of the flagella with basal bodies and associated structures are are cut longitudinally. Below is the spherical nucleus and portions of chloroplast.

Technical Details

250 nm thick epon sections were recorded with a high voltage JEM-1000 TEM at 1000KV.
