SIV envelope complex cryo-electron tomographic structure. The envelope complex mediates viral entry and is a target for vaccine and drug design studies. Shown here are a reconstructed virion, three views of the averaged structure of the spike in the membrane, and a slice through a tomogram in the background (see Fuller et al).
