RNA interference viral suppressor and RNA. Computer model showing the molecular structure of the B2 protein (purple) from a flock house virus (FHV), suppressing a double-stranded, small interfering RNA (siRNA) molecule (red and green). RNA interference, or RNA silencing, has developed as a defence against viruses. However, some viruses have developed proteins such as B2, that inhibit the process and allow them to infect the host's cells.
