The distribution of dengue 2 antigens was studied in infected monkey kidney cells (LLC MK2) using an indirect, horseradish peroxidase conjugated immunoglobulin technique. This procedure allowed both light and electron microscopic examination of serial step sections of individual cells cut in a plane perpendicular to the monolayer. Both virion and nonvirion antigens were identified on the plasma membrane with this technique. A diffuse cytoplasmic reaction product was also present. The intensity and distribution of the cytoplasmic reaction product was related to disruption of the plasma membrane.
