Illustration of Tamiflu and Influenza Type B virus of the family Orthomyxoviridae which affects mainly humans. A new virion is shown budding (upper left) on the plasma membrane of the host cell. A mature virion is still attached to a salic acid molecule on a surface glycoprotein. The antiviral medication Oseltamivir (Tamiflu -- upper centre) acts by preventing neuraminidase from cleaving this bond and releasing an active virus. Black = carbon, white = hydrogen, blue = nitrogen.
