Cilia have a "9 + 2" microtubule arrangement.?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
True: In cilia, there are 2 central microtubules, with 9 pairs of microtubules arranged in a circular pattern around them.
It's kind of a bad way of thinking about them, because it's really an 18+2 pattern, or a 9+1. Anyway, it's true.
