Characterization of the PH(1–110) GFP particles. a Scheme of the genetic construct for the generation of recombinant baculovirus expressing PH(1–110) GFP particles, in the orange box is shown the polyhedrin promoter (polh), the blue box represents the 110 amino acids of the polyhedrin and the green box represents the GFP protein bound at the carboxyl terminus of polyhedrin. b SDS-PAGE (left) and WB (right) showing the bands of GFP protein expression (~ 28 kDa) and the PH(1–110) GFP particles (~ 42 kDa). c In confocal microscopy image is observed in blue (DAPI) the nucleus of an insect cell (SF9) that contains inside the PH(1–110) GFP particles (green). d TEM image of PH(1–110) GFP particles, the particles are observed compact and irregular. e SEM image showing PH(1–110) GFP particles of size different and irregular morphology
