Caption: Reverse transcriptase. Computer generated model of a DNA reverse transcriptase enzyme molecule. The enzyme (blue) is seen interacting with and building a double-stranded DNA molecule (pink and yellow). Reverse transcriptase is an enzyme contained in certain RNA viruses; when the virus infects an animal cell, the enzyme builds double- stranded DNA molecules from single-stranded RNA templates. Viruses with this ability are called retroviruses, and in this way they instruct the infected cell to form more viruses. Research into reverse transcriptase activity could prevent retroviral infection.
