PHIL Image 5620

ID#:5620
Description:This electron micrograph reveals a number of RNA rotavirus virions, and a number of unknown, 29nm virion particles.

A rotavirus has a characteristic wheel-like appearance when viewed by electron microscopy, i.e., rotavirus is derived from the Latin rota, meaning "wheel". Rotaviruses are nonenveloped, double-shelled viruses, making the virus stable in the environment.
