    • Stylized model of the fullerene cone capsid of HIV

      • The HIV capsid comprises about 1,500 copies of the CA protein. The subunits come together following the geometric principles of a fullerene cone. The image shows both a geometric model of the capsid (the yellow cage) and a molecular model. The molecular model was assembled from X-ray structures of the HIV-1 CA hexamer (colored in cyan) and pentamer (colored in red).
