Dengue virus immediately prior to the fusion of the viral lipid membrane

Artistic rendering of Dengue virus immediately prior to the fusion of the viral lipid membrane (bottom) to the endosomal membrane of the host cell (top). Two dengue virus envelope protein trimers are shown on either side of a nascent membrane fusion stalk. Completion of membrane fusion requires the helical “stem” regions (to anneal onto the core of the E trimers. Image created by Yorgo Modis and Digizyme, Inc.
