Morphological characteristics of Sarcocystis tenella sarcocysts from sheep muscle. (A) Light micrograph of a sarcocyst (unstained); note the sarcocyst wall with numerous palisade-like protrusions (pp). Scale bar = 20 μm. (B) Longitudinal section of sarcocyst wall by transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The sarcocyst wall had palisade-like protrusions (pp), characterized by the apex which contained dense plaques (arrow); a layer of ground substances (gs) located beneath the primary sarcocyst wall surrounded bradyzoites (bz). Scale bar = 1 μm. (C) Cross-section of a sarcocyst by TEM; note the dense plaques (arrow), ground substance (gs), bradyzoites (bz), and host cell (hc). Scale bar = 1 μm.
