Flashcards in DIT Micro Virus Basics Deck (12):
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)
RNA=CPR and hepevirus
where does DNA virus replicate?
Nucleus (they use our machinery) except poxvirus b/c it has itson DNA dependent RNA polymerase
Wehre does RNA virus replicate?
Cytoplasm (except influenza and retroviruses)
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)
Which DNA virus is single stranded?
Which DNA viruses are linear?
all except for:
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
What RNA virus is double stranded?
REpeatO-virus is REOvirus
reovirus is dsRNA
(rotavirus and reovirus are reoviridae)
What does plus strand mean for RNA?
Means that protein can be translated immediately
What are the DNA viruses?
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
Sabin (polio that is oral)
Measles, Mumps, Rubella
