Respiratory epithelial A549 cells inoculated with respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) for 24 hours are stained for RSV F protein (green) and cellular F-actin (red); nuclei have been counterstained with DAPI (blue). This image shows the cell on the left is infected and has extensive RSV-induced filopodia that contact the uninfected cell on the right. Filamentous RSV particles can be seen on the infected cell surface and at filopodia tips. Mehedi et al.
