Abstract

Summary

Galinsoga mosaic virus (GMV) has isometric particles about 34 nm in diameter when examined in preparations negatively stained with uranyl acetate. They are similar to the particles of viruses belonging to the tombusvirus and dianthovirus groups but not to those of the sobemovirus group. GMV induced the development of large multivesicular bodies from the mitochondria in infected cells which only superficially resembled those observed in cells infected by tombusviruses. The possible taxonomic and functional significance of the multivesicular bodies is discussed and it is concluded that GMV does not readily fit into any of the established virus taxonomic groups.
