Comments P.2 left column bottom paragraph: "Super-resolution optical microscopy imaging has been used previously to reveal HIV-1 subviral structures [refs 2, 9, 11]. However, measurements of the mobility of virus surface molecules require an observation technique with both a high spatial and temporal resolution as their diffusion coefficient may be comparable to plasma membrane proteins ( ≈ 0.1 µm^2/s), and the spatial displacement is within the <140 nm diameter of the virus particle."
