Caption: AIDS virus. Coloured scanning electron micrograph of the surface of a T-lymphocyte (blue) infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the causative agent of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS). The T-lymphocyte is from a culture cell line known as H9. An Infected T-cell has a lumpy appearance with irregular rounded surface protrusions. Small spherical virus particles (red) seen on the surface are budding away from the cell membrane. Depletion of the population of T4 lymphocytes through HIV infection is the main reason for the destruction of the immune system in AIDS. Magnification: x11,600 at 6x7cm size. x40,000 at 10x8"
