The genetics of virus particle shape in equine influenza A virus
Elton, Debra and Bruce, Emily A. and Bryant, Neil and Wise, Helen M. and MacRae, Shona and Rash, Adam and Smith, Nikki and Turnbull, Matthew L. and Medcalf, Liz and Daly, Janet M. and Digard, Paul (2013) The genetics of virus particle shape in equine influenza A virus. Influenza and Other Respiratory Viruses, 7 (s4). pp. 81-89. ISSN 1750-2640
Background Many human strains of influenza A virus produce highly pleomorphic virus particles that at the extremes can be approximated as either spheres of around 100 nm diameter or filaments of similar cross-section but elongated to lengths of many microns. The role filamentous virions play in the virus life cycle remains enigmatic.
