The hepatitis C virus particle consists of a
lipid membrane envelope that is 55 to 65 nm in
diameter. Two viral envelope glycoproteins E1
and E2 are embedded in the lipid envelope.
They take part in viral attachment and entry
into the cell. Within the envelope is an
icosahedral core that is 33 to 40 nm in
diameter. Inside the core is the RNA material of
the virus.
E1 and E2 are covalently bonded when
embedded in the envelope of HCV and are
stabilised bydisulfide bonds.
