Mumps virus


Mumps virus. Colored Transmission Electron Micrograph (TEM) of a mumps virus (at center left) a member of the paramyxoviridae virus family. The virus has a core of genetic material (RNA) enclosed in a roughly spherical capsid. A protein envelope around the capsid is seen in the form of minute projections from the surface of the virus. These projections are made up of a substance that sticks to the surface of red blood cells (haemagglutinin) and an enzyme called neuraminidase. Mumps causes fever, headaches and vomiting followed by the swelling of the parotid salivary glands in the neck.
