The Corona (COVID 19 Virus)
This is not a photograph, but rather an illustrated visualization of the microscopic coronavirus but in real life under high microscope magnification, the virus particle would appear black and various shades of grey and white. It is shown in colour here just to high light the Viruses like the coronavirus that causes COVID are not living as such and they can’t replicate on their own.
They invade cells in the bodies of animals, including humans, and take over — making people sick. The hijacked host cells then reproduce the virus.
The grey surface is the envelope that surrounds the nucleus of the virus and contains genetic material.
The orange fragments are “membrane proteins,” or M proteins, the most abundant structural protein in the virus and one that gives it form. These and other proteins vary from one type of virus to another and can be used to help understand or identify one virus from another.
The yellow particles are envelope proteins, they play an important role either in regulating virus replication, such as virus entry and subsequent assembly and release.
The red protuberances are clumps of proteins the virus uses to attach to and then entry into the human cell where they multiply, they are much more effective than previous Coronaviruses at adhering to human cells, they create the effect of a halo, or corona, around the virus, hence its name ‘Coronavirus’.
