3D animation showing the path of a HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) particle that has entered the bloodstream. It circulates in the blood until it reaches a target T cell (white). The gp120 surface protein on the virus binds with the CD4 receptor proteins on the T cell. This binding initiates the infection as the virus fuses with the membrane of the T cell and releases its genetic material into the cytoplasm.
