Electron micrographs of negatively stained polyoma virus were first published by Wildy et al. (196o). The surface was shown to consist of close-packed, large morphological units some of which were 6 co-ordinated with their neighbours and some 5 co-ordinated. From this latter observation it was concluded that the virus particles have icosahedral symmetry and a 42 morphological unit model of the surface structure was proposed. The proposal of this model was criticized by Caspar & Klug (I962… CONTINUE READING
