NAME:

  flame cell


DEFINITON:

  Terminal structure of the protonephridia unit, capping the proximal tubules. Flame cells are defined by the filtration weir‚ or filtration diaphragm, which consists of closely apposed strands of cytoplasm surrounding a central cilia bundle, and by numerous microvilli between weir and cilia. Positive for acetyated tubulin.
