High voltage and conventional electron microscopy were used to investigate the ultrastructure of the ciliary apparatus in intact and in Triton-extracted, reactivated sheets of mucociliary epithelium isolated from newt lung. Each long (about 13 microns) ciliary axoneme terminates on a barrel-shaped basal body which is anchored in the apical cytoplasm by a… CONTINUE READING
