Caption

HIV virus budding from cell. Coloured Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of an HIV virus in the process of budding out of an infected T-lymphocyte human blood cell. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus responsible for AIDS. At upper left, the virus (brown) is beneath the membrane of the cell (white). Clockwise, the sequence shows it bursting from the cell to lower left. Once free, the daughter HIV virus (orange) can reinfect other T-cells. T-cells are involved in the body's immune response. By infecting these cells, HIV can form new viruses. When they bud out, the T-cell is damaged and the body's immune system is weakened.
