Plaque NotesPlaques range from <1 to 5 mm in diameter. Often a small number of surviving cells is present within the plaque, these cells exclusively express the gene for red pigment. It is hypothesized (but still unverified) that these cells are lysogenically infected, and that the lysogenic Kromp infection is responsible for this expression.
