Buenas Tardes! I would like to know if anybody could help me with the translation of the above, as I am finding it a bit difficult. The text is about HIV and AIDS and my attempt is below. The last part does not read very well, so I would appreciate any help! Does 'their hereditary characteristics' refer to the structural proteins? Como en los demás retrovirus, la información genética del virus está en forma de ARN, que contiene las «instrucciones» para la síntesis de proteínas estructurales, las cuales al unirse conformarán al nuevo virus (virión); es decir sus características hereditarias, que le son necesarias para replicarse. As with other retroviruses, the genetic information of the virus is in the form of RNA, which contains “instructions” for the synthesis of structural proteins. When these structural proteins combine, they constitute the new virus; that is to say, their hereditary characteristics, which are necessary for them to replicate.
