AIDS: HIV Virus Infecting White Blood Cell - Medical Animation
This 3D medical animation shows the virus HIV releasing its viral capsid into the cytoplasm of a white blood cell during viral replication. Once inside the cell, the capsid disentegrates, releasing viral RNA. The viral RNA and reverse transcriptase enzyme begin creating a new strand of viral DNA using the viral RNA strand as a template. Ultimately, the cell dies and falls apart (apoptosis), sending more copies of the virus into the blood stream.
