Description: Aggregates of Maize mosaic virus (MMV, Rhabdoviridae) in cells of the salivary gland of the insect vector Peregrinus maidis (planthopper, Hemiptera, Delphacidae). Antibodies to MMV identify aggregates (green/yellow fluorescence). In the salivary gland, MMV aggregates are found mainly in the cell periphery or intercellularly, in contrast to other tissues in the insect vector that accumulate mainly around the nuclei (red). N, nucleus.
