    Cryo-electron microscopy of the dengue virus showing protective membrane and membrane proteins


    Dengue virus is a mosquito-borne illness that infects millions of people in the tropics and subtropics each year. Like many viruses, dengue is enclosed by a protective membrane. The proteins that span this membrane play an important role in the life cycle of the virus. Scientists used cryo-EM to determine the structure of a dengue virus at a 3.5-angstrom resolution to reveal how the membrane proteins undergo major structural changes as the virus matures and infects a host. For more on cryo-EM see the blog post Cryo-Electron Microscopy Reveals Molecules in Ever Greater Detail. Related to image 3756.

We?d like to use the video of the dengue virus in the post. Do we also have permission to use this video in our image gallery? The video would then be made available for educational, news media, or research purposes, provided that users credit the source of the image, i.e., you. Below is a draft of the section of the post covering your research. Could you please review it for scientific accuracy and let me know if you have any concerns by this upcoming Monday? Best, Carolyn
