HIV replication cycle. Diagram and magnified views showing the retroviral process by which the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) replicates. Incoming virus particles (far left) attach to cell receptors (view 1) and release their protein core through the cell membrane. The core releases the RNA (ribonucleic acid) which is converted to DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) by an enzyme (view 2). The viral DNA enters the nucleus (centre) and is added to the cell's DNA (view 3) and used to make new RNA (view 4) that leaves the nucleus and directs ribosomes to make new viral proteins (view 5). These make new virus particles (far right, views 6 and 7).
