Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph of a rabies virion (virus particle), a member of the Rhabdovirus family. The bullet-shaped virions possess a helical protein capsid containing genetic information in the form of single-stranded RNA. A lipoprotein envelope surrounds the capsid. The virus is usually transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected dog or other animal. Symptoms appear after an incubation period ranging from 10 days to 1 year & include fever, muscle spasm, & hydrophobia. Death occurs within 4-5 days. Magnification: x200,000 at 6x7 cm size.
