Caption: Papillomavirus. Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of papillomaviruses, the cause of warts. The DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) genetic material of the pink viruses is contained inside a spherical protein coat or capsid. Several viruses can be seen inside an irregularly shaped capsule. Papillomavirus (human papillomavirus or HPV) is the cause of warts. Warts commonly grow on the hands, the soles of the feet, the genitals and on the body's mucous membranes. Papillomaviruses belong to the papovavirus group, most of whose members are capable of inducing non-malignant tumours. HPV has been implicated in certain skin and cervical cancers. Magnification unknown.
