Image of the month - September 2019

baculovirus particle

Once again we feature work by Hemanta Maity, working in Professor Ian Jones' group from the School of Biological Sciences (see also October 2018). In this TEM image (which has been colourised), the long structures are cylindrical baculovirus particles, which are used for the for expression of empty capsid particles of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV). The small, spheroidal particles in the image are the empty FMDV capsids. These capsids are being studied for possible use in vaccination for FMD.
