he structure of HIV: In the nucleus, which consists of proteins, there are two RNA-molecules. They contain the information which are important for the reproduction of the virus.There are enzymes of the virus reverse transcriptase which are bonded to those molecules. This nucleus is rounded by a protein-based membrane. This is again protected by a fat membrane.
The outer membrane has receptors on it, which can be compared to many compatible coupling pieces.With those,it is easy for the virus to stick on many different cells of the immune system. HIV attacks the Helper T cells (T4 cells), a type of white blood cell instrumental in fighting disease. In the HIV reproduction process, a T4 cell is used by a viral cell to manufacture two viral cells in its place.
