Structure of basal bodies revealed by electron tomography. (A) Room temperature tomography visualized microtubule networks around basal bodies. From [101] with permission from Wiley. (B) Reconstruction from cryo-electron tomography indicates the hook structure on the microtubule triplet (top left), stacked cartwheels (bottom left and right), and branched spokes (right).
