Product Description

mini-virus.pngThis remarkably intricate keychain depicts a virus of a group know as the Herpesviridae. Every detail, right down to the capsid and envelope proteins has been rendered with great attention to accuracy! The lipid envelope opens up to reveal the iconic, icosahedral viral capsid, which in turn opens up to reveal the viral DNA. Even the unique types of capsomeres (capsid protein subunits) have been depicted. For a more detailed description of the parts of this keychain, see this blog post
