Caption: Actin tail. Immunofluorescence deconvolution micrograph of a close-up of an actin filament (green) in a cell infected with vaccinia virus particles. Actin is part of the cytoskeleton, which allows some cellular mobility and is involved in intracellular transport. A tyrosine kinase protein, c-Abl (red), is seen at the tip of the tail. C-Abl is involved in catalysing actin motility. Several viruses use actin tails to propel newly formed particles out of the host cell towards neighbouring uninfected cells.
