Hemagglutinin: Grappler of Doom

Behold... Hemagglutinin! It is one of the deadly tools of the influenza virus, killer of millions!

Bask in its deadly majesty...

Marvel at its perilous helices and treacherous beta sheets...

Its structure has been instrumental in the eradication of trillions of living cells... and yet, it has a certain pernicious beauty about it.

This evil looking red is perfect for a virus protein.

And check out this snazzy, gray background... classy.
