Caption

Coloured transmission electron micrograph (TEM) of a Herpes simplex virus. The symmetrical capsid or protein coat of the virus is at centre (orange) lipoprotein. The double-membrane envelope is thought to help the virus penetrate and infect cells. Herpes simplex is a DNA virus, occurring in two forms - type 1 and 2 - which are visually identical but biochemically different. Herpes simplex is a parasite of humans, causing a variety of infections including whitlows and cold sores of the mouth & genitalia. Genital herpes is sexually transmitted, and associated with cervical cancers in women. Magnification: x117,000 at 6x6cm size.
