Virus particles were isolated from hypertrophied salivary glands of the tsetse fly, Glossina pallidipes collected near Mombasa, Kenya. Purified virus particles were rod-shaped, 57 nm wide by 700 to 1300 nm long. Particle lengths fell into two size classes, with 'short' particles averaging 869 nm and 'long' particles 1175 nm. The virus particles morphologically resembled elongated baculovirus nucleocapsids although, unlike baculoviruses, no fully enveloped virions were found in purified… CONTINUE READING
