What are the physical characteristics of the virus particles? Product FAQ
Note: These are based on the characteristics of HIV.
Morphology: Virions have a complex construction and consist of an envelope, a nucleocapsid, a nucleoid, and a matrix protein. Virions are enveloped, spherical to pleomorphic in shape, and have a size of 80-100 nm in diameter. The surface projections are small or inconspicuous spikes that are densely dispersed, evenly covering the surface. Surface projections are 8 nm long. The core is rod-shaped, or is truncated cone-shaped. The nucleoid is concentric.
Physicochemical and Physical Properties: Virions have a buoyant density in sucrose of 1.13-1.18 g cm-3. Virions are sensitive to treatment with heat, detergents, and formaldehyde. The infectivity is not affected by irradiation.
Proteins: Proteins constitute about 60% of the particle weight. The viral genome encodes structural proteins and non-structural proteins. Virions consist of 5 major structural and 3 non-structural proteins. The virus codes for an RNA-dependent DNA polymerase.
Lipids: Lipids are present and located in the envelope. Virions are composed of 35% lipids by weight. The composition of viral lipids and host cell membranes are similar. The lipids are of host origin, derived from plasma membranes.
Carbohydrates: Three percent of the particle weight is attributed to carbohydrates.
