Caption

Hepatitis B virus. Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of Hepatitis B virus particles. The orange spheres with red core, known as Dane particles, are the complete virus. Brown rods are parts of the disassembled virus coat without a core and these are inactive. Hepatitis B virus is the cause of "serum hepatitis" or hepatitis B. The virus attacks the liver producing inflammation and flu-like symptoms, followed by jaundice. Hepatitis B is a sexually transmitted disease. It is also spread by infected blood through blood transfusions, tattooing, acupuncture, and needle sharing by intravenous drug users. Vaccines are available. Magnification: x60,000 at 6x7cm size.
