Description: Caption:
This highly-magnified scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image revealed some of the ultrastructural features seen on the surface of an Acanthamoeba polyphaga protozoan. Note the numerous pseudopodia, projecting from the organism’s surface. These enable the amoeba to move about, and grasp objects in its environment.
