A 3D molecular model of a human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) particle. HIV infects cells in the immune system, causing the body to become progressively more susceptible to infections and diseases. The conical viral capsid (red) is surrounded by a matrix composed of viral proteins (blue). These structures are enclosed within a viral envelope (purple) embedded with glycoproteins (yellow), which help the virus attach and fuse with target cells.
