Do viruses have both DNA and RNA?
Viruses can have either single stranded RNA, single stranded DNA, double stranded RNA, or double stranded DNA.
Both plant and animal cells and viruses contain RNA. Some viruses contain DNA but not both DNA and RNA. Animal and plant cells contain both RNA and DNA.
There are two main types of viruses: DNA viruses or RNA viruses but not both DNA and RNA.
Reverse transcriptase is the name given to the group of viruses having both the RNA and DNA.
Both have dna and rna
Viruses have either a DNA nucleic sequence OR a RNA nucleic sequence
Viruses have either DNA or RNA (not both) as their genetic material. Animal and plant cells have DNA as their genetic material and they also have RNA but it is used for producing proteins.
Viruses that are made of DNA use the host cell's enzymes to synthesize the RNA needed to synthesize viral proteins. Viruses that contain RNA have an enzyme called reverse transcriptase which they can use to synthesize DNA from an RNA template. Thus, they don't need to have both.
Because it doesn't use it's DNA or RNA to function, it uses it to inject into a cell and switch the cell's instructions to its own so the cell will make more viruses. Cells have DNA and RNA to tell the cell what to do, but viruses just do it naturally. Viruses have no use for both.
Yes,viruses contain either DNA or RNA depending on the type of the species.There are certain viruses which have single stranded DNA/RNA and even double stranded DNA.Well,DNA is a genetic material like wise RNA is also a genetic material..eg.Rubella is caused by a RNA-containing virus whereas smallpox is caused by a DNA -containing virus.
Infuenza Virus Contain Both DNA and RNA. No other Virus show such characteristics.
Viruses have either DNA or RNA but not both as their hereditary material.
DNA and RNA.
Both HSV and HPV are DNA viruses
they both have dna and rna
No. They contain one or the other not both.
Bacteria generally have a single strand of DNA and can also have plasmids which are DNA material but are separate from the chromosomal DNA. As you may know from elementary genetics, the DNA get transcribed to RNA. Therefore bacteria would technically have both. Viruses on the other hand can be both depending on the type from the Baltimore classification. For example, Type I is double stranded DNA, Type II is single stranded DNA and Type… Read More
Viruses are made of a protein shell and either DNA or RNA. Viruses with RNA are called "retroviruses."
Viruses do not contain DNA or RNA . . . they 'steal' those molecules from their host living cell.
Viruses are composed of two main parts: an outer protein covering called a capsid and an inside core of either DNA or RNA. Not both DNA and RNA. Living cells also contain DNA and RNA. These are the only thing shared by living cells and viruses.
both bacteria and virus have either RNA or DNA
Only Influenza virus Contains Both ..
Viruses are infectious agents that replicates only within the presence of host cell. There are two main types of viruses based on their nucleic acid as a genetic material- RNA Viruses and DNA Viruses. RNA viruses have RNA (ribonucleic acid) as their genetic material and are usually single stranded, whereas, DNA Viruses have DNA (deoxyribo nucleic acid) as their nucleic acid and are usually double stranded. RNA Viruses mutates faster than DNA Viruses. DNA replication… Read More
rna viruses are unstable and uncontrollable
They are (double stranded) DNA viruses.
The similarities are that viruses and bacterium both consist of DNA or RNA within their cell wall and both can cause diseases
DNA and RNA are both examples of genetic material. All living organisms from viruses and bacteria to humans either have one or the other.
Viruses can have either DNA or RNA (a virus will never have both at the same time, although some viruses can have each one separately at different stages of their life cycles). RNA viruses are much more common than DNA viruses.
Although they both both contain RNA & DNA and both cause diseases. Bacteria is living and viruses are not. Viruses need a host cell to reproduce.
Viruses are composed of two main parts an outer protein covering called a capsid and an inside core of either DNA or RNA. Not both DNA and RNA. Some of these have an envelope over the capsid. The ones that do not are said to be naked. The proteins in the capsid allow the virus to attach to the "docking stations" proteins of the host cell. The naked viruses are more resistant to changes in… Read More
Yes. Although not both together, a virus contains a nucleic acid, either single stranded or double stranded DNA or RNA.
The two kinds of genetic material that can be found in viruses is either going to be RNA or DNA either or you want find both in same virus, but what can happen is (Dogma - DNA to RNA they have an RNA to DNA step this usaully occurs in Retoviruses suh H.I.V..
Viruses have their own genome which can be made of RNA or DNA, so some do contain DNA. Some viruses, but not all. All viruses have some sort of nucleic acid, whether single-stranded DNA, double-stranded DNA, single-stranded RNA, or double-stranded RNA.
DNA and RNA viruses.
DNA and RNA. Viruses that use RNA often have to have enzymes that convert the RNA to DNA.
ANSWER There are only two differences between RNA and DNA and that is the substitution of Thymine (in DNA) with Uracil (in RNA). Although DNA is mostly double stranded and RNA mostly single stranded, there are BOTH single stranded DNA and double stranded RNA amongst the viruses. It is one of the major levels used to classify viruses. The other difference is, in DNA 2-deoxy-D-ribose is used in the spine while in RNA just plain… Read More
Cells are considered "living". Viruses are not because they require a host body to reproduce and perform living functions such as reproducing, creating ribosomes, etc. Cells contain RNA and DNA, as does viruses. However viruses may not contain both DNA and RNA, only one.
Both Herpes Simplex I and II are double stranded DNA viruses (dsDNA)
RNA viruses generally have very height mutation rates compared to DNA viruses, because viral RNA polymerases lack the proof. readind ability of DNA polymerases. RNA viruses includs SARs, influenza, and hepatitisc. chacha on!
They are called Rna viruses. Rna retro-viruses are a different and somewhat more complex matter.
yes! Virus contains both DNA and RNA some viruses contain RNA as their geneti information and are called retroviruses.when retroviruses infect a cell, they produce a DNA copy of their RNA.
Yes, viruses are primarily made up of either DNA or RNA both of which are nucleic acids.
They both consist of long chain nucleotide units . RNA is normally single stranded but even double stranded RNA exist and they are similar to DNA . This double stranded DNA forms genetic material of some viruses. Both the DNA and double stranded RNA has two poly nucleotide chain twisted around each other.
No it is not. Retroviruses are RNA viruses that can change their RNA into DNA for cell infection (example HIV). Influenza viruses are also RNA viruses, but they do not transcribe the RNA into DNA. Some people think the R in RNA stands for retrovirus, but it stands for ribonucleic acid.
Pneumonia is inflammation of the lung disease. It can be caused by bacteria or viruses. Most of the time, it is bacterial (which contain DNA). Viruses can be RNA or DNA-based.
Some viruses move RNA, some DNA; but RNA is more common.
reverse transcriptase. With this enzyme, the RNA viruses can make DNA using their RNA as a template.
Some viruses contain RNA; these are known as retroviruses. Others contain DNA.
No they don't
during replication RNA-polimeraze it make a lot of erros.In this ways RNA viruses it mutate faster than DNa viruses.
Yes. Viruses contain a protein coat called a capsid. Inside this capsid will be DNA or RNA but never both. Viruses that contain RNA are called retroviruses. They also contain the enzyme reverse transcriptase that allows them to convert RNA into double-stranded DNA once it infects a cell.
