Under a high magnification of 446,428X, this 1978 negatively-stained, transmission electron microscopic (TEM) image, revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by numbers of rotavirus particles. A Reoviridae family member, virions contain an RNA core, and are surrounded by a three-layered, icosahedral protein capsid. The rotavirus is not enveloped, and measures 76.5nm in diameter.
