Reovirus associates with Gram negative and Gram positive bacteria.

Reovirus T1L (A, C) or T3D (B, D) was incubated with E. coli (A, B) or B. subtilis (C, D) for 2 h at room temperature. Cells were stained with sodium phosphotungstic acid (PTA) and imaged by electron microscopy. Scale bars 0.2 μm in whole cell images, 50 nm in insets.
