  • a Morphologies of virus-like particles. Virus-like particles from cells transfected with the indicated HIVLuc viruses were sedimented through 20% sucrose cushions, resuspended, and processed for EM. The percentages of particles with discernibly roughly conical or cylindrical cores were determined from the indicated numbers of separate virus particle images.
