Caption: AIDS virus. Conceptual computer artwork of many HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) particles that are sectioned to show their internal structures. HIV causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) by infecting the white blood cells (T- cells) of the immune system. The spherical viral membrane (orange) is studded with surface proteins (green), which allow HIV to grab onto and invade T-cells. As the number of T-cells diminishes, the patient becomes vulnerable to formerly harmless infections.
