Display image description
Single tilt image from a double tilt series through 0.2 um thick section of a freeze-substituted VeroE6 cultured cell infected with the SARS-CoV taken with transmission electron microscopy. Dark particles are 10 nm colloidal gold particles that were applied to the surface to serve as fiducial markers for alignment of the tilt series.

Specimen preparation
Protocol used
For ultrastructural morphological investigations, SARS-CoV-infected Vero E6 cells were pre-fixed (for biosafety reasons) overnight with 3% paraformaldehyde in 0.1M PHEM buffer (60 mM piperazide-1,4-bis[2-ethanesulfonic acid], 25 mM HEPES, 2 mM MgCl2, 10 mM EGTA) at various time points after infection. For cryo-fixation, cell monolayers adhered to Thermanox coverslips (Nunc, Denmark) were plunged into liquid ethane. Freeze substitution was performed at -90C in an automated freeze-substitution system (Leica, Austria) using an FS medium consisting of 90% acetone and 10% water, containing 1% osmium tetroxide and 0.5 % uranyl acetate. After washing with pure acetone at RT, the samples were embedded in epoxy LX-12 resin. Thin sections were collected on 100 Mesh grids, 1.25% pioloform support film contrasted with uranyl acetate and lead hydroxide and subsequently viewed at 80 kV with a Philips CM-10 transmission electron microscope (Philips, The Netherlands).
