Does aids go through the lysogenic life cycle or lytic life cycle?
The lysogenic life cycle
The virus that causes AIDS, HIV, is lytic in nature. Once it attaches itself into a host cell, it will go about integrating its genetic material into the host cell and use its machinery to force the cell to make copies of the virus. Additionally, the viral cell will kill the host cell in the process.
What is an infection in which a virus makes copies of itself and causes the host cell to burst called?
There are many misconceptions about the transmission of AIDS. Some are that AIDS can only infect homosexuals or drug users, that AIDS cannot be transmitted through oral sex, that you can tell if a person has AIDS by looking at them, and that AIDS can be spread by casual contact. All of these misconceptions are factually inaccurate.
