Caption

Artwork of hepatitis C virus particles (virions). Each virus consists of a core of RNA (ribonucleic acid) enclosed in a capsid, and surrounding by a glycoprotein envelope. Inserted in the envelope are surface proteins (spikes), which help the virus attach to its host cell. The hepatitis C virus infects liver cells causing an inflammatory disease that can lead to degeneration and scarring (cirrhosis). It is transmitted by blood-to-blood contact.
