Epstein Barr virus (EBV) capsid proteins, computer artwork. EBV particles (virions) are composed of a protein coat (capsid) encasing a double-helix of DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid), the genetic material of the virus. Embedded in the capsid are several proteins that enable the virion to infect its host's cells. EBV is associated with glandular fever and Hodgkin's lymphoma. Infection occurs through shared bodily fluids.
