Fig. 6

The orchestrated mitosomal segregation and flagellar maturation during mitosis. 3D reconstructions of mitosomal and flagellar dynamics during mitosis shows (i) separation of the caudal flagella with the connected mitosomes during prophase. Note also the formation of the new connecting microtubular fiber on both anterolateral flagella. (ii) During meta/anaphase the mitosomes become associated with the new fiber on the former anterolateral flagella. (iii) During telophase, two new pairs of caudal flagella (the coloring according to the original interphase cell) are formed with more mitosomes (green) connected to the new caudal flagellum. AL1, AL2—anterolateral flagella; C1, C2—caudal flagella
