Visualization of four distinct influenza viral RNA segments within a single cell.
A 3D rendering generated using Imaris software (from Bitplane) of an MDCK cell infected with influenza A/WSN/1933 (H1N1) virus with four influenza viral RNA segments identified by fluorescent in situ hybridization: PB2 (red spots), PB1 (green spots), PA (orange spots), and NP (yellow spots). The nucleus is labeled in blue based on DAPI staining. Lakdawala et al.
