Caption: Mosaic of a human poliovirus particle composed from tiles of various medical images. Computer model of the capsid of the human poliovirus. The capsid is a protein coat that encloses the virus's genetic information (genome), stored as RNA (ribonucleic acid). The protruding proteins (pinky beige) are receptors, which enable the virus to recognize and bind to a host cell. Poliovirus infects children and causes poliomyelitis, a disease which in severe cases damages the nervous system, leading to paralysis or death. Created using AndreaMosaic creditware.
