'IBIS' is a set of computer programs concerned with the processing of electron micrographs, with particular emphasis on the requirements for structural analyses of biological macromolecules. The software is written in FORTRAN 77 and runs on Unix workstations. A description of the various functions and the implementation mode is given. Some examples(More)
Human alpha 2-macroglobulin is a tetrameric plasma inhibitor of proteinases. Its dissociation by Cd2+ gives functional dimers. Electron microscopy of negatively stained dimers shows their round-ended cylindrical shape with furrows delimiting 3 main stain-excluding domains. Image processing of electron micrographs shows the existence of 2 main orientations(More)
IBIS is a set of computer programs dedicated to the processing of electron micrographs, mainly for structural analysis of biological macromolecules. We present IBIS version 3, a UNIX/OSF/Motif 1.2-based package which carries out and provides visual display of the many operations essential to image analysis. To ensure portability, the software is written in(More)
Crystalline accumulations of ferritin-like particles are present within the cytoplasma and the nucleus in midgut epithelial cells of the homopteran Philaenus spumarius. A structural study at the electron microscope level reveals that these particles have the morphological characteristics of the ferritin molecule: crystals have a face-centered cubic(More)
