Caption

AIDS virus. Illustration showing the internal structure of an AIDS virus. AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome) is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The core of this HIV virus particle is a capsule (green) containing RNA strands (ribonucleic acid, coloured lilac). Around the core is an icosahedral shell of matrix proteins (green and black). Over this is a membrane envelope (yellow bilayer) taken from the membrane of the host cell that made this virus particle. Anchored to the shell are viral knobs (magenta) that allow the virus particle to attach to cells. AIDS impairs the immune system and allows often fatal secondary infections.
