This is an electron microscopic image of an isolate of Marburg virus, which is similar in morphology to Ebola virus. The internal structures of the filamentous particle are visible, including the nucleocapsid and other structural viral proteins, and the outer viral envelope is covered with surface projections. The characteristic “6-shape” of the virus is evident. See PHIL 23186, for a digitally colorized version of this image.
