Description:This transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image revealed the presence of numerous intracellular Group C RNA tumor virus particles, which were present inside this central nervous system tissue specimen.
The RNA tumor virus is a member of family Oncovirinae, and are linked to the initiation of tumors, otherwise known as “oncogenesis”. Based upon virion morphology, and host range, Oncovirinae members are further classified into four groups: A, B, C, and D, whereupon, Groups A members are found located intracytoplasmically and intracisternally, and the Gropus B, C, and D are family genera.
