Image of Vesiculovirus


This negatively-stained transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed the presence of numerous Piry virus virions, many of which could be seen as they were budding from the host cell, thereby, becoming free to migrate throughout the host’s system. Note the bullet-like shape of the small 155nm x 162nm virions, as they’re freed from the host cell. Normally, under electron microscopic examination, the virions are observed as being discoidal or spheroidal in shape, and only rarely as bullet-shaped, as was the case here.
