How does a virus sustain life in its host?
First things first a virus is not living. The virus injects its Genetic material (G.M. for short) and and makes the bacteria make more viruses.
A transient virus has a life that depends on the life of its host; the virus runs when its attached program executes and terminates when its attached program ends. A resident virus locates itself in memory; then it can remain active or be activated as a stand-alone program, even after its attached program ends. A resident virus don't search for host when they are started. A resident virus can stsys active in the background.
A virus is RNA and DNA surrounded by protein. A virus can not live alone without a host cell. The life cycles are: attachment, penetration, uncoating, replication and release. During the release process, viruses may escape from the host cell by causing cell rupture viruses typically "bud" from the host cell. During the budding process, a virus acquires the phospholipid envelope containing the embedded viral glycoproteins.
The chicken pox life cycle is as follows: the virus that is called virus varicella-zoster which is the host cell attaches itself to specific sites on the host cell. Then following the attachment, the viral nucleic acid is inserted through the plasma membrane and into the hosts cytoplasm. After it is inside the host cell, the viral nucleic acid changes the metabolism of the host so that new parts of the virus are formed. These…
A virus injects its DNA into the host cell making it produce multiple copies of that DNA and multiple copies of the protein capsule of that virus. After a while, the host cell becomes full of many copies of that virus, then the host cell explodes releasing all the new viruses. If the host cell is a bacterium and the the virus is a bacterophage, this phenomenon is done in two ways either by the…
A virus. A virus is an obligate parasite, meaning it requires a host in order to reproduce. It is defined not as a living an organism, but not as an inanimate being either. It has RNA and uses a host in order to carry out all basic life functions. In doing so, many times a virus will alter the host's behavior to be more condusive to spreading the virus.
