  • We performed indirect immunogold electron microscopy (EM) for immunological identification and characterization of hepatitis C virus (HCV). To clarify the morphology of HCV, an indirect immunogold EM of two plasma samples from patients with high HCV RNA titers was carried out using antibodies specific for the putative HCV envelope protein (E) 1. Spherical virus particles 55–65 nm in diameter with delicate spike projections were detected in the 1.14–1.16 g/ml fractions after sucrose density… CONTINUE READING
