HIV reverse transcription enzyme

HIV reverse transcription enzyme. Molecular models of the reverse transcriptase enzyme found in HIV (the human immunodeficiency virus). The foreground model shows the helices and arrowed sheets representing the enzymes shape (secondary structure). The background model shows the 7844 atoms (spheres) of the molecular structure. Reverse transcriptase is an enzyme that is a key part of the process of producing DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) from the instructions contained in a strand of RNA (ribonucleic acid). Many viruses, including HIV, consist of a core of RNA, and this reverse transcription is how HIV infects human cells. This enzyme is from the HIV-1 form of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome)

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate molecular models of the HIV reverse transcription enzyme, found in the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In the foreground model, we can observe the helices and arrowed sheets that beautifully represent the secondary structure of this vital enzyme. Meanwhile, in the background model, a staggering 7844 atoms are depicted as spheres to illustrate its complex molecular structure. Reverse transcriptase plays a crucial role in converting RNA into DNA during viral replication. Many viruses, including HIV, possess an RNA core which utilizes reverse transcription to invade and infect human cells. This particular enzyme belongs to HIV-1, which is responsible for causing AIDS (acquired immune deficiency syndrome). The image not only highlights the significance of this enzyme but also serves as a testament to scientific advancements in medicine and biochemistry. The computer-generated artwork provides us with an insight into how molecules interact at an atomic level. With elements such as alpha helices and beta sheets intricately arranged within space fill models, this illustration captures both beauty and complexity simultaneously. It serves as a reminder of our ongoing battle against infectious diseases while showcasing how genetic instructions are translated from one form to another. This remarkable photograph from Science Photo Library perfectly encapsulates various disciplines such as chemistry, genetics, virology, immunology, and medicine all converging together through one extraordinary molecule - HIV reverse transcription enzyme.
