Herpesvirus-like particles in neuron of a harbor porpoise with
herpesvirus type 2 infection. Cerebrum of harbor porpoise #2 infected with Phocoena phocoena herpesvirus type 2, an alphaherpesvirus. Transmission electron micrographs of a neuron, stained with uranyl acetate and lead citrate. The nucleus of the neuron has electron-dense clumps of marginated chromatin and contains an intranuclear inclusion body. Within this inclusion body, there are round to hexagonal unenveloped viral nucleocapsids, some with an electron-dense core (inset). Bar of inset = 200 nm.
