Hepatitis E protein capsid, virus-like particle of genotype 3. Genotypes 3 and 4 infect humans, pigs, and other animal species and have been responsible for sporadic cases of hepatitis E in both developing and industrialized countries. Rendering with ambient occlusion shadowing helps distinguish surface features. View is along the 2-fold icosahedral symmetry axis (centerprotrusion) surrounded by icosahedral 3-fold axis to the right and left and icosahedral 5-fold axis at top and bottom (apparent depression). Individual small spheres are atoms making up the proteins.
