Some do have a lytic cycle but some have a lysogenic cycle. The common cold is a virus that has a lytic cycle. HIV has a lysogenic (hides) cycle.

In the lytic cycle, the virus lyses, or destroys the host cell after the virus has reproduced using the host cell's machinery. In the lysogenic cycle, this does not happen. A virus in the lysogenic cycle can, however, enter the lytic cycle.

A lytic virus will destroy its' host cell at the end of the lytic cycle.

Ebola doesn't rest and hide like a lysogenic virus. It is a lytic virus.

Lytic cycle and lysogenic cycleThe difference is that in lytic cycle, the virus kills the cell immediately.

The lytic cycle is one that produces more flu particles. The bird flu doesn't have a lysogenic cycle or hidden cycle. It has only a lytic cycle.

The Norwalk virus (Norovirus) does not have a lyosgenic cycle. It does not remain dormant as lysogenic viruses can. It is lytic and is considered virulent as many lytic viruses are. Most bacteriophages are lysogenic. See link below:

lysogenic cycle is the answer .... because the lytic cycle does destroy the host cell of the virus?

Some viruses have a lytic cycle or a lysogenic cycle. The difference in these two cycles is that the cell dies at the end of the lytic cycle or the cell remains in the lysogenic cycle. The virus remains "hidden".

The monkeypox virus does go through a lytic cycle in order to replicate. This virus is a zoonotic disease that can affect both animals and humans.

The pox virus is related to the herpes viruses and they are lytic but can become latent. Latency is not the same as lysogenic.

The Norwalk virus (Norovirus) does not have a lyosgenic cycle. It does not remain dormant as lysogenic viruses can.

Yes, viruses do undergo the lytic and lysogenic cycle. Depending on what type of virus determines which process they undergo.

the host cell becomes a virus

The pox virus is a lytic virus in that it kills the cell within 12 hours. The herpes virus can be both lytic and lysogenic (hidden).

Once the virus is inside the cell it's either is lytic or lysogenic. If the virus is lysogenic then it eventually turns to lytic and destroys the cell releasing a lot of baby viruses.

The lytic cycle causes destruction of infected cells and their membrane. A virus that uses a lytic cycle reproduces itself or makes copies that are sent back into the environment and they are called virulent viruses.

Virus reproduces inside a living host by replication during lytic and lysogenic cycle .

Lytic refers to lysis which means separate in Greek. When a virus has replicated in a cell, the new viruses made in the cell cause the cell to separate or split open so the virus particles can get out and infect more cells and make more viruses.

in lytic cycle virus act as a master and takes control of bacterial DNA and and its biochemical activities as a result bacteria is internally eaten and finally disintegrates by virus and produce 100 to 200 viruses. in lysogenic virus act as a guest and bacteria is not harmed by virus.
