Unformatted text preview: RT makes a dsDNA copy of the viral RNA genome. (4) The DNA copy and integrase migrate into the nucleus. (3) Integrase mediates the random insertion of the viral DNA into a chromosome, forming the provirus . (4) The cellular machinery expresses the viral genes. viral DNA (1) transcription (2) viral RNA (1) exported from nucleus (2) viral messenger RNA viral genomic RNA translation packaging viral proteins nucleic acid of new viruses used in different ways (2) (2) d) assembly and release of new viruses Env proteins insert into plasma membrane as they are synthesized. (2) Other structural proteins, enzymes, and RNA are assembled into icosahedral cores. (4) The progeny virions wrap themselves in matrix protein and a swath of cell membrane, as they bud off from the cell. (5) e) maturation After the virus has budded from the cell, the protease will further cut the capsid proteins and remodel the capsid into a bullet shape. (4)...
