The loukoumasome.

A, Loukoumasomes and their morphological variants in whole-mounted pelvic ganglion (confocal stack). ax = axon. B, The loukoumasome contains γ-tubulin (γT). Glial centrosomes are apparent as small dots (pelvic ganglion, standard epifluorescence, z-stack, maximum projection). Inset: confocal orthogonal view showing distribution of SDL.3D10 and γ-tubulin immunoreactivity. MAP2: microtubule-associated protein 2. C, Unlike centrioles (arrow, single confocal slice), loukoumasomes are pericentrin-negative (Inset: confocal stack). Scale bar units: µm.
