Figure legend

Fig. 8. The basal body duplication cycle. Electron microscopy of serial thin sections resolved the order of events in basal body duplication and early stages of new flagellum growth. A–C. Longitudinal sections through a 1K1N cell; the kinetoplast in this cell is associated with one basal body (B, arrow) subtending the single flagellum and one pro-basal body (C, arrowhead).
