EM of the virophage RNV. Electron microscopy of virophage accumulation in the cytoplasm of A. castellanii infected with SMBV and APMV. A, B) Significant accumulation of virophage particles (indicated by an asterisk) around the viral factories and SMBV particles; C, D, E) SMBV particles with defective morphology as a result of infection by virophage; F, G) Virophage isolated from SMBV are also able to associate with APMV and accumulate near the viral factories, leading to the formation of defective viral progeny. VF = viral factory.
