Herpes simplex type 2 virus (HSV-2) particle, computer illustration. HSV particles (virions) are composed of an outer lipid envelope and an icosahedral protein core (capsid) encasing DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, yellow), the genetic material of the virus. HSV-2 causes genital herpes, a sexually transmitted infection that causes inflammation of the skin and mucous membranes, characterized by fluid-filled blisters.
