Figure legend

FIGURE 6 Part of a rhizoplast and 2 basal bodies in the cytoplasm of a flagellate. X 113,000.

Figure notes

Linking the two basal bodies, we can see the inter-basal body linker (named like this in other articles). The authors refer to connecting fibers in the rhizoplast-basal body junction.
