Coxsackie B3 virus particle. Computer artwork of the capsid of the Coxsackie B3 virus, with proteins represented by coloured blobs. The capsid is icosahedral in shape, with 20 triangular faces. Spike proteins (for recognising and binding to host cells) are shown in red. Coxsackie B viruses cause infectious myocarditis (swelling of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (swelling of the sac surrounding the heart).
