Caption: Scanning electron micrograph of a tobacco leaf protoplast, Nicotiana tabacum. It has been cultured for 12 hours causing the cell wall to begin to reform (in different experiments wall formation begins at different times). The golfball effect is caused by slight contraction of the outer membrane as the protoplast dried. Each dimple corresponds to the position of an underlying chloroplast. X 3500.
