RCSB PDB News ImageZika virus is shown in cross section at center left. Visible on the periphery are envelope proteins (pink) and membrane proteins (magenta) embedded in a lipid membrane (light purple). Within the interior of the virus, the RNA genome (yellow) is associated with capsid proteins (orange). Two viruses are shown interacting with cell surface receptors (green) and are surrounded by blood plasma proteins outside the cell.
