Caption: False-colour transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a single Epstein-Barr virus particle, showing its icosahedral protein capsid (yellow, centre) and surrounding lipoprotein envelope (orange with yellow border). The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) is 1 of 5 herpes viruses that attacks humans. In Europe & US infection may produce glandular fever; in Central Africa EBV infection may lead to Burkitt's lymphoma, a facial cancer affecting children. Infection with EBV is common & usually harmless; additional factors potentiate the development of more serious diseases. In the case of Burkitt's lymphoma malaria is a likely cofactor. Mag: x100,000 at 6x7cm, x50,000 at 35mm.
