Herpes simplex type 1 virus (HSV-1) particle, computer illustration. HSV particles (virions) are composed of an outer lipid envelope and an icosahedral protein core (capsid) encasing DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid, orange), the genetic material of the virus. HSV-1, more commonly known as oral herpes, causes sores around the mouth and lips known as cold sores.
