The molecular organization of cellulose Ibeta microfibrils in the tunic of Halocynthia papillosa was analyzed by high-resolution cryoelectron microscopy on ultrathin cross sections of artificially highly oriented microfibrils. The arrangement of cellulose chains intersected by the 0.6-, 0.53-, and 0.39-nm equatorial lattice planes was clearly imaged over the whole area of a parallelogram-shaped cross section of a microfibril. One, edge of the parallelogram was parallel to the 0.6-nm lattice… CONTINUE READING
