Gallery 25:  Infection of H-9 cells with the MN strain of HIV-1 virus, electromicrograph 3
Description:
Virus particle budding out from the cell. Although similar to the previous micrograph, the inner core is not as dense and therefore this is an "immature" viron budding out as opposed to a mature virus fusing in to infect a cell.
Keywords:
virus particle, viron, micrograph, inner core, hiv, cells
