49. The replication of animal viruses differs from the replication of bacteriophages in what way? a. Once inside the host cell, animal viruses undergo a process of “uncoating” whereby the viral genome is separated from its protein coat; the genome of a bacteriophage is already without a coat once it is in the host cell b. In the penetration stage, bacteriophages inject their DNA through the phage tail core into the bacterial cell; animal viruses either fuse their envelope with the host’s plasma membrane or enter by endocytosis c. Both of the above (a and b) are correct d. Neither of the above (a nor b) is correct e. Only a is correct 50.

(True or false ) The mechanism of viral release known as budding occurs only with naked viruses. 45. A bacteriophage infection that is termed productive is most likely an infection with a The following are the steps of phage replication by dsDNA bacteriophages 1) release; 2) penetration; 3) attachment; 4) transcription and translation of viral DNA; 5) assembly; 6) replication of phage DNA and protein 46.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
