SummaryAs shown in tangential sections of Pelomyxa carolinensis nuclei, there are many pores, each with a surrounding annulus. Each annulus is composed of 8 subannuli or satellites, plus one to three central granules. Each satellite is an electron opaque mass (of much smaller opaque particulates) about 25 nm in diameter. The outer diameter of each annulus is about 115 nm while the inner, or pore diameter, is about 65 nm. The pores occur at distances averaging 185 nm from center to center… CONTINUE READING
