Proteasomes and virus destroying

Re--6 Powerful virus-destroying machines (cylinders) attracted to virus by TRIM21--

Those cylinders are proteasomes:

They eat viruses (enveloped or not) up when they are attracted to them by TRIM21.

The chain is as follows:
Virus attracts antibodies.
Antibodies attract TRIM21.
TRIM21 attracts the proteasome cylinders.
