Figure legend

Fig. 2. Transmission electron micrographs of interphase and dividing cells of T. vaginalis. (B) At division a bundle of microtubules or paradesmosis (D) arises between the two separated atractophores (At1 and At2). Scale bars = 1μm.

Figure notes

The associated MTOC is called an atractophore. The microtubule bundle is called the paradesmosis.
