Electron microscopic examination of ultrathin sections of a continuous cell line of ovine kidney (OK) origin, infected by bovine respiratory syncytial virus (BRSV), revealed the presence of well defined bridges between virus particles. This is the first report of this novel structure. Observation of ultrathin sections of human RSV Long strain also grown on OK cells did not show inter-particle bridges and therefore suggested that this structure could be specific to BRSV. The biological… CONTINUE READING
