Structure of bovine respiratory syncytial virus


Bovine respiratory syncytial (BRS) virus propagated in calf kidney (BK) cell cultures was examined by negative contrast and thin section electron microscopy. In negative stained preparations the virus proved to be of great pleomorphism. Many particles appeared roughly spherical with an overall diamter of 80–450 mμ. On an average, enveloped viruses covered… (More)
