Caption: Mimivirus. Computer artwork of an Acanthamoeba polyphaga mimivirus (APMV) particle. APMV is commonly known as the mimivirus. This virus consists of outer hairs, or fibrils, and a protein capsid enclosing a core of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the virus' genetic material. It is thought that APMV may cause viral pneumonia.
