Figure legend

Figure 6. A. Early stage of basal-body duplication in a dividing control cell. The nascent microtubular cylinder develops anterior and perpendicular to the mother basal body and is aligned along its antero-posterior axis (arrows). A/P and R/L refer to the antero-posterior and right-left polarities of the cell and of each basal body. The scale bar represents 0.1 micrometer.
