Fig. 1

Particles of echovirus 18 in the process of genome release lack parts of their capsids. a Cryo-electron micrograph of echovirus 18 particles captured in the process of genome release after incubation at acidic pH. Black arrow indicates activated particle, white arrows particles in the process of genome release, and black arrowheads empty particles. Scale bar represents 25 nm. b Reference-free two-dimensional class averages showing echovirus 18 particles in the process of RNA release lacking parts of their capsids. Two representative electron micrographs of particles are shown for each class average. Scale bar represents 10 nm
