Cells of various tissues, such as leaves, roots, flowers, and fruits, from L. plants infected with cucumber green mottle mosaic virus (CGMMV) have been studied by electron microscopy. Virus particles were consistently observed in the ground cytoplasm of various tissue cells infected with CGMMV. The small vesicles observed in the mitochondria were probably a characteristic modification related to the virus replication. They were always bounded by a single membrane and located in the perimitochondrial spaces between outer and inner membrane, and in the cristae. These vesicles could be formed in the mitochondria as soon as or before virus production begins, and they seemed to be increased with the development of virus infection.
