viruses replicate in the host cells. they inject their DNA inside the host cell. the host cell makes more DNA and protein capsules and burst out. new viruses are replicated.

Viruses replicate inside the host cell by essentially hijacking the cell's metabolic processes.

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.

Yes. Like all viruses, it goes inside a host cell and replicates itself.

No. Viruses must invade a host cell and hijack its resources to replicate itself.

The only way viruses can replicate ("reproduce") is to take over the cells of a living host.

it cannot replicate its structure by itself because it is acellular and so has to inject a host cell with its RNA and "instruct" it to replicate the RNA for it. Viruses generally have either DNA or RNA, not both, and since both nucleic acids are needed for replication, viruses depend on their host cell to replicate them.

Cold germs are viruses which are not alive like bacteria and some other germs are. Viruses are essentially a group of chemicals, proteins, and genetic materials that work together as an infectious organism. They can only function inside a host animal or plant and they use the materials and actions of the invaded cells of the host to replicate themselves. So the thing that keeps the cold viruses "alive" and provides the viruses with the materials they need to replicate, is the host.

viruses are not considered living because they cannot replicate without host cell.

For a virus to replicate it must insert its own DNA into a host nucleus cell. This newly infected cell finds another host cell to replicate, and a viral infection is produced.

It is difficult because viruses lack the ability to replicate themselves and theey lacks energy metabolism and other pathways that living things have. Viruses are totally depending on their host. If they want to replicate, they have to infect the host.

Viruses replicate after they have infected a living cell.

Viruses either have a strand of DNA or RNA not both like living organisms. They need a host (you and me) in order to replicate.

The viruses need a host to reproduce. Once they are inside the cells of a host, they can begin the process of replication.

NO. Viruses are are small infectous agents that can replicate INSIDE cells.

They are not considered to be living because they do not have metabolism and they do not replicate outside of the host cell.

Viruses replicate by hijacking a host's cells. The virus inserts its own RNA sequence into the host cell's nucleus, forcing it to replicate the virus until the host cell dies.

intracellular pathogens can only replicate inside a host cell, whereas extracellular pathogens can replicate independent of the host

Viruses hijack the cell and use the cell's machinery to produce proteins.

Viruses can not replicate without a living host cell. This is one reason that they are not considered to be alive.

Viruses need a living host for reproduction. They, themselves, are not alive, so they must have a living host to provide the material to use for building duplicates, as well as for the energy to use in the production.

They replicate using a host cell's metabolic machinery.
