Fig. 18. Shell matrix-like membranous structures formed on the bottom of culture vessels. Mantle fragments were cultured for 1 (A, C, D) or 2 months (B) with Pf35 medium with slight modifications. Arrowheads indicate thin membranous structures formed on the bottom at peripheries of the mantle fragment. Overlapping of the structures is discernible in C and D. An arrow in A indicates dark brown secretions of the fragment. Scale bars - 200 μm (A–C) and 100 μm (D), respectively.
