HIV-infected Dendrite

Credit: Stuart Truville

A HIV infected dendritic cell reveals numerous viral particles at the tips of filopodia (projections of the cell membrane). Actin-based membrane extensions from the dendritic cell are phalloidin stained (red). HIV particles (white) decorate the filopodial terminal ends. To label viral particles, a construct containing eGFP at the C-terminus of the HIV matrix was expressed. The nucleus of the cell is stained with DAPI and is represented in cyan.
