Caption: Haemagglutinin 1 protein, molecular model. This protein is from the surface of the deadly influenza A virus that caused a pandemic of 'Spanish flu' in 1918. Haemagglutinin binds the virus to the cell membrane before it enters the cell. The haemagglutinin on the 1918 virus was particularly efficient at binding to human cells, partly accounting for the virulence of the outbreak, estimated to have killed 50-100 million people worldwide. In this model, solid colours represent the secondary structure of the protein and the faded tubular structure behind represents the individual atoms and bonds.
