e coli cluster

This picture shows the structure of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus(HIV). The outer shell of the virus is known as the Viral envelope. Embedded in the viral envelope is a complex protein known as env which consists of an outer protruding cap glycoprotein (gp) 120, and a stem gp14. Within the viral envelope is an HIV protein called p17(matrix), and within this is the viral core or capsid, which is made of another viral protein p24(core antigen).
