How many microtubules are present in the peripheral fibrils of
1. cilia

Dear student

Please refer the solution below for the said query

Cilia and Flagella

  • These are hair-like outgrowths of the plasma membrane.

  • Cilia: Structures working as oars; help in motility

  • Flagella: Comparatively longer and fewer than the cilia

    • There are 9 pairs of peripheral microtubules and one pair of central microtubules which constitute axoneme in cilia and flagella.This arrangement is called 9 + 2 array.
