Figure 6

Electron tomography and 3-D model of endosymbiotic bacteria of Litomosoides chagasfilhoi. A: Tomographic series showing a bacterium in an embryo cell. The bacterium is located in a vacuole (V) near the nucleus (N), and it was possible to observe the outer membrane (OM) and some association with the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) (Bar 5 μm). B: 3-D model obtained from a tomographic series (yellow: nucleus, green: symbiont outer membrane, light blue: vacuole membrane and pink: endoplasmic reticulum). C: Tomographic series showing a bacterium and the vacuole membrane (V) in close association with the nucleus (N) of the nematode host (Bar 5 μm). D: Detail of the vacuole (V) and nucleus (N) proximity (Bar 5 μm). E: 3-D model obtained from a tomographic series (yellow: nucleus, green: symbiont outer membrane and light blue: vacuole membrane).
