Flashcards in Virology Deck (18):
1

targets for neutralizing antibodies

exposed proteins on capsid and membrane

1

type V virus genome type

single strand -RNA to +mRNA

1

type I virus genome type

double strand DNA to mRNA

2

outcome of infection - latent

no production of infectious particles, but genetic info remiains

3

measures how many viruses come out of single infection

single-step growth curve

4

outcome of infection - abortive infection

virus life cycle incomplete and virus lost

6

outcome of infection - persistent infection

chronic virus reproduction

8

membrane fusion of adjacent cells to form giant, multinucleate cells =

syncitia

9

infectious particle =

virus

11

viral particle =

viron

12

type IV virus genome type

single strand +RNA to -RNA to +mRNA

12

spread of virus throughout the body via blood =

viremia

13

MOI =

multiplicity of infection (how many viruses coming into cell?)

14

type III virus genome type

double strand RNA to -RNA, to +mRNA

15

type VI virus genome type

single strand +RNA to -DNA to Double stranded DNA to +mRNA

16

outcome of infection - productive infection

cytopathic effect with a burst in virus production

17

Type II virus genome type

single strand DNA, to double, to mRNA

18

quantification of viruses that promote cell growth

Focus forming assay
