This core might or might not contain two central microtubules (a 9 + 2 axoneme and a 9 + 0 axoneme, respectively).
The axoneme of the PC comprises nine parallel doublets of microtubules, which form a ring.
(1977) Observations of the structural components of flagellar axonemes and central pair microtubules from rat sperm.
The flagellar region included an axoneme, a pair of mitochondrial derivatives, a pair of triangular accessory bodies, and a puff-like corpuscle with electron-dense areas (Fig.
These transformed halves elongate and orient themselves on either side of the developing axoneme. The derivatives become a major component of the mature sperm flagellum.
ROS increase DNA fragmentations (1), modify the cytoskeleton (15), affect the sperm axoneme development (9) and inhibit sperm-oocyte fusion.

The basic structure of nonmotile, primary cilia of the renal tubular cells consists of 9 peripheral microtubular doublets that form the axoneme, surrounded by a lipid bilayer that is continuous with the cell membrane.
During spermiogenesis, the distal centriole forms the axoneme of the sperm tail and becomes a vestige, whilst the proximal remains close to its nucleus and is inherited by the embryo (8,9).
The distal centriole begins to develop the axoneme (thread) that will become the tail (flagellum) of the sperm cell.
