nucleocapsid

(no͞o′klē-ō-kăp′sĭd, nyo͞o′-)
n.
The nucleic acid of a virus together with the protein coat that encloses it.

nucleocapsid

[no̅o̅′klē·ōkap′sid]
Etymology: L, nucleus + capsa, box
a viral enclosure consisting of a capsid or protein coat and a nucleic acid that it surrounds. Some viruses consist solely of bare nucleocapsids; others have more complex enclosures.

vi·ri·on

(vī'rē-on)
The complete virus particle that is structurally intact and infectious.

nucleocapsid

a minimum unit of viral structure, consisting of a protein capsid with the enclosed nucleic acid. For some viruses the nucleocapsid is enclosed within an envelope.
