Hepatitis E virus (HEV) particles in the cell culture supernatant of pork liver sausage sample A, collected at 33 dpi. A) Transmission electron micrograph of negatively stained HEV particles ≈33 and 34 nm (arrowheads). Scale bar indicates 200 nm. B–D) Hepatitis E virions ≈28 (B), 33 (C), or 32 (D) nm in diameter, identified by using an HEV genotype 3–specific rabbit hyperimmune serum and a gold-labeled secondary antibody. Arrows show bound gold particles. Scale bars indicate 50 nm.
