Baculoviridae - Baculoviruses
Viral Images Example Virus Name Image Description

Genus Granulovirus

N/A
Cydia pomonella granulovirus

Genus Nucleopolyhedrovirus

Autographa californica nucleopolyhedrovirus (AcMNPV) This high magnification electron micrograph shows a negatively-stained baculovirus virion. Note the asymetric capsid structure and the presence of an envelope with surface projections (peplomers). From the Carstens' Lab at Queen's University, Canada.
baculovirus AcMNPV This electron micrograph shows a thin section of an insect cell infected with the baculovirus AcMNPV. A portion of the cell cytoplasm is seen in the bottom right hand corner. Many enveloped extracellular virions have budded through the cytoplasmic membrane and are visible outside the cell. From the Carstens' Lab at Queen's University, Canada.
baculovirus AcMNPV This high magnification electron micrograph shows a thin section of an insect cell infected with the baculovirus AcMNPV. A portion of the nucleus containing enveloped virions in the process of being occluded into a developing polyhedron is shown. From the Carstens' Lab at Queen's University, Canada.
baculovirus AcMNPV This low magnification electron micrograph shows a thin section of an insect cell infected with the baculovirus AcMNPV. The nucleus contains many polyhedra which in turn contain many occluded enveloped virions. Several different types of virus inclusion bodies are also visible in both the nucleus and cytoplasm. From the Carstens' Lab at Queen's University, Canada.
