Flashcards in DIT Micro Virus Basics Deck (12):
1

Naked viruses have no envelope and can withstand harsh conditions and can be transmitted sexually or fecal oral.

What are the non enveloped Viruses? Mnemonic from first aid

give PAPP smears and CPR to a NAKED Heppy (hippy)

DNA=PAPP

Papillomavirus
Adenovirus
Parvovirus
Polyomavirus

RNA=CPR and hepevirus

Calicivirus
Picornavirus
Reovirus
Hepevirus

2

where does DNA virus replicate?

Nucleus (they use our machinery) except poxvirus b/c it has itson DNA dependent RNA polymerase

3

Wehre does RNA virus replicate?

Cytoplasm (except influenza and retroviruses)

4

What genetic event puts world at risk for flu pandemics?

Reassortment as segments are switched.

Only RNA viruses that are segmented do it (DNA viruses aren't segmented)

5

Which DNA virus is single stranded?

Parvovirus "part-of-a-virus)

6

Which DNA viruses are linear?

all except for:

Papillomavirus
Polyomavirus
Hepadenavirus

7

What are the positive stranded RNA viruses? mnemonic. Maybe not the most high yield list.

I went to a RETRO TOGA party where I drank FLAVored CORONA and ate HIPPY CALIfornia PICkles

retrovirus
togavirus
flavivirus
coronavirus
hepevirus
calicivirus
picornavirus

8

What RNA virus is double stranded?

REpeatO-virus is REOvirus

reovirus is dsRNA

(rotavirus and reovirus are reoviridae)

9

What does plus strand mean for RNA?

Means that protein can be translated immediately

10

What are the DNA viruses?

HHAPPPy virus

Hepadena
Herpes
Adeno
Pox
Parvo
Papilloma
Polyoma

11

Mnemonic for live attenuated vaccines? Live attenuated are better protection (even lifelong)

Live! One night only! See SMALL YELLOW CHICKENs get vaccinated orally with SABIN and MMR! Its INcredible

Smallpox
Yellow fever
Chickenpox
Sabin (polio that is oral)
Measles, Mumps, Rubella
Influenza (intranasal)

12

Killed viral vaccinations are what? mnemonic

RIP Always

Rabies
Influenza (injected)
Polio (SalK is Killed and injected)
hAv (hepatitis A
