3D VISUALIZATION OF VIRIONS BY ATOMIC FORCE AND MICROLENS MICROSCOPY
Plant viruses do not have common pathogens with mammals, and therefore in recent years the development of medical and veterinary biotechnologies based on them has been actively developed. Such developments include the creation of platforms for functionally active molecules, drug delivery vehicles and biocontrast agents. The study of the structure, morphology and structural features of the surface of viral particles is an important area that makes it possible to develop new effective methods for combating viral infections and related tools of molecular medicine. In this work, the structure and properties of tobacco mosaic virus particles as a model object were studied using AFM. AFM has been demonstrated to be a suitable tool for studying viral particles.
