Viruses attach themselves to and then replicate inside of a cell in order to replicate itself. DNA viruses replicate in a cell's nucleus while RNA viruses generally replicate in the cell's cytoplasm.

A Virus, clearly because it does not meet living requirements.

First, a virus cell gets into the body. It then latches on to a cell in your body and injects it with it's own virus genetic code. By doing this, it transforms the cell in your body to a virus producing factory. Eventually, there are so many virus cells in the Body cell that it can no longer contain it, so it bursts open, then, these numerous more virus cells go on to infecting more body cells, and so on, so fourth. Your only protection is your immune system.

The virus needs a host to be able to reproduce, if it kills the host, it also "kills" itself and replication.

Since a virus can only replicate on a living cell, host cell, it wouldn't be able to reproduce.

Because a living thing must be able to reproduce a virus doesn't rather it infects a cell and that cells reproduction system acts as the viruses way to reproduce

Algae is a disease itself but it is not really able to be caught. You would have to have algae in you to have the disease.

bacteria, smoking, and tanning

The virus won't be able to live and reproduce since its not within a living cell(organism/s)

With the speed of the internet these days Virus is in your computer and on its way to the next one in no time at all.

no because the virus that starts the disease is not able to beheld and spread

AIDS is a virus, not a disease. You can only contract AIDS by first having HIV (Human immunodeficiency virus). HIV/AIDScould be considered an epidemic by the millions of people who have died from the virus and our inability to control/cure it. Scientists have never been able to locate where HIV was 'born'.

its is unknown when a dolphin can reproduce

Scientists have not been able to find a cause for the disease although they believe it could be caused by a virus or defects to DNA, the immune system, or enzymes found in one's body. These defects may be caused by pesticides or other types of toxins/poisons. Much more research must be done before a true cause will be found.

Yes, being able to reproduce temselves is one of the requiremnets for being an organism.

According to many scientific literature, all living organisms should be able to reproduce.Viruses do not reproduce. Instead, they inject their genetic material into another cell. This process is called pilus.

Bacteria and viruses are the same in that they both contain genetic material, they both are prokaryotic, and they both are single celled. The main difference between them is that a bacteria is classified as living and a virus is classified as non-living. This is because bacteria can reproduce on their own, where viruses need to invade a host cell to be able to reproduce.

The person with tay sachs will most likely die before being able to reproduce.

In theory yes, but in real life some specimen may be unable to reproduce because of a disease, injury etc. That doesn't exclude them from being a part of the species.

They both are able to reproduce by earanal sex and also they are both able to fight of disease with swordskies, but unfortunately only antigens are found in fabrics such as carpets and bed spreads...

Head lice are currently being considered as vectors (able to carry disease). At the moment though there is nothing to prove that lice can carry or transmit virus or disease to humans..

Antibodies for measles don't work against chickenpox virus because antibody for measles virus can not bind to chickenpox virus. Antibody for a specific antigen should have a shape and structure that is able to fit into this virus. Then it will be able to inhibit the activity of this virus. When a measles vaccine is inserted inside human body, or when someone has measles, the T type lymphocytes (White Blood Cells) detect the type of viruses and then B type lymphocytes produce the antibodies against this specific type of virus. If viruses of the vaccine are alive they will reproduce themselves inside the human body and the number of antibodies against them also increases. Antibodies bind to these viruses and destroy them. Now the virus (of specific disease which needs prevention) which was in the vaccine have been destroyed but the antibodies against this disease viruses are still there and they prevent from the actual disease causing viruses. Antibodies are specific: An infection with the measles virus means that the person makes antibodies only against measles. It doesn't make any antibodies against chickenpox too.

If the cat was spayed or neutered when it had lived with humans, it won't be able to reproduce. But if it wasn't, then it will be able to.

Rabies is caused by a virus that attacks the brain, causing severe inflammation (encephalopathy) and death if not treated. This virus is called the rabies virus. The rabies virus, which is an RNA virus, is part of the family of viruses called Rhabdoviruses. It appears that there are several variations of the rabies virus that are able to cause rabies.

A stallion if it is able to reproduce; a gelding if it is unable to reproduce
