Early steps in reovirus infection are associated with dramatic changes in supramolecular structure and protein conformation: analysis of virions and subviral particles by cryoelectron microscopy and image reconstruction.

Method Abstract: "Three structural forms of type 1 Lang reovirus (virions, intermediate subviral particles [ISVPs], and cores) have been examined by cryoelectron microscopy (cryoEM) and image reconstruction at 27 to 32-A resolution."
Comments P.1030 right column 2nd paragraph: "The maximum diameter of the T1L-V shell is 855Å which compares favorably with the 830-Å dimension obtained by small-angle, x-ray solution scattering (Harvey et al., 1981)."
