3D reconstruction of stacks of Z sections taken through B. subtilis cells expressing MreB-GFP. 180° view of cells (panels are tilted 15° relative to each other as indicated by the grey arrows next to the panels). A) Horizontally turned view of two cells (ends are indicated by white lines, arrow indicates clearly visible helical filament), B) horizontal (upper panel) and vertical (lower panel) view on a single cell (white arrow indicates helical filament, grey arrow half turn filament). The cartoons indicate the rotation, the cartoon on top for the first two panels, the cartoon on the right for the third panel. All images are scaled identically, grey bar 2 μm.
