Many B structures are seen (arrowheads). Bars indicate FIGURE 11. Freeze-replica images of an in situ chlamydial inclusion membrane containing the Chlamydia pneumoniae.

The surface projections are, therefore, possible candidates for that function.

Both micrographs show hexagonally arrayed projections in a limited area of the surface. Bars indicate 300 nm. outer membrane is mediated by surface projections, but these projections have not been visualized because of inadequate opacity in thin sections prepared by ordinary procedures. This supposition is supported by evidence that the projections are located in a group on a limited surface area (Fig. (1) By the freeze-replica technique, in situ inclusions at the late stage of multiplication are visualized as convex and concave faces (Fig.
