The common renal adenocarcinoma of the leopard frog was studied in thin sections with the electron microscope. Approximately a third of the tumors examined were found to contain spheroidal bodies of uniform size and distinctive morphology that are believed to be virus particles. These consist of hollow spheres (90 to 100 mmicro) having a thick capsule and a dense inner body (35 to 40 mmicro) that is eccentrically placed within the central cavity (70 to 80 mmicro). Virus particles of this kind… CONTINUE READING
