As observed by scanning electronic microscopy, mimivirus antigen (A) is recognized by antibodies in our microimmunofluorescence assay using conventional fluorescence microscope (B) and confocal microscope (C). Mature particles within amebas are also recognized by antibodies seen with transmission electronic microscopy immunogold technique (D) (mimivirus particle size 400 nm).
