Ebola virus is a filamentous, enveloped, negative-sense RNA virus known for causing Ebola Virus Disease (EVD). The protein structure depicted in this painting is the nucleoprotein (NP). The primary function of the nucleoprotein is to bind genomic RNA forming the ribonucleocapsid. NP is required for Ebola virus particle formation and replication.
