HIV V IRUSES Be able to draw, describe, and explain the lytic and lysogenic viral cycles. Draw and describe 3 viral particle shapes Be able to present HIV life cycle, structure, disease, treatment. Lytic (into exon) and Lysogenic (into intron) life cycles. Rhino (nose) virus – highly mutagenic Influenza – spherical virus Cylindrical Crystal shaped Capsid – virus protein coat that contains the plasmid. HIV – has 9 genes in its nucleic chain, 6 of them which are human genes. (so it originated from a human ancestor), they do evolve. Piece of RNA, capsid (container), envelope (because viruses often get into and out of cells by exo. and endocytosis). Glycoproteins are signal molecules that attach to a

Deadly, swap/switch from lytic to Lysogenic. | P a g e Gautham 6/1/2010 HIV virus, AIDS- acquired immunodeficiency syndrome | P a g e Gautham 6/1/2010 BSE mad cow disease. Prions: a protein that replicates itself, turning your cells into something useless for you. Crutzfeldt Jakob disease (CJD): affects brain, but only in Papa New Guinea.
