The trypanosomatid Crithidia fasciculata possesses an intraflagellar structure known as the paraflagellar or paraxial rod which runs from a point 1 to 2 micrometer distal to the basal body to the flagellar tip. In longitudinal section the paraflagellar rod was composed of three "sets" of parallel filaments arranged in a lattice. In cross section it consisted of two electron dense "plaques", one near the flagellar membrane, the other near the axoneme, separated by 6 to 7 fibrous elements. The… CONTINUE READING
