SUMMARY: Vaccinia virus has been examined with the electron microscope by several techniques in conjunction with experimental modifications of structure. [...] Key Result Negative staining revealed that over 80% of the virus in highly purified preparations were particles which appeared to have a beaded surface like a mulberry and were termed M forms. The beading was formed by loops of thread-like structures 90 A wide which were themselves double helices formed from two 30 A strands coiled to a 120 A pitch…Expand
