Figure legend

Fig 8 – Ultrastructural features of zoospores in the Rhizophydiales. (D) Longitudinal Section (LS), isolate PL AUS 021 (Boothiomyces macroporosum), of narrow zone of convergence in fibrillar bridge between the kinetosome and non-flagellated centriole. Bar = 0.25 um. Legend: K: kinetosome; NfC: non-flagellated centriole; ZC: zone of convergence.

Figure notes

Kinetosome-associated structure (KAS) is an electron-opaque laminated spur (Sp) adjacent to the kinetosome. It was correlated with the presence of a vesiculated region anterior to the kinetosome. We consider kinetosome as the flagellar base (which includes the basal body and the transition zone).
