Microtubules tend to be of a helical structure, do microtubules in centrioles also have a helical structure?

The centriole is composed of nine circularly arranged triplet microtubules, one complete microtubule (the A-tubule) onto which two additional partial microtubules are assembled (the B- and the C-tubules, respectively. )

What are the structures of A, B and C respectively, are they helical?
