Ultrastructural characteristics of Nipah virus isolate in cell culture as seen by negative-stain (A) and thin-section (B) EM (courtesy of C. S. Goldsmith). (A) A single nucleocapsid shows the typical herringbone appearance characteristic of the family . (B) Nipah virus nucleocapsids become tightly aligned along the plasma membrane as particle prepares to bud. Scale bar, 100 nm.
