Lecture 5: Virus Entry.
1. Enveloped and naked viruses utilize two very different general methods to get their genomes
delivered to the cell. What are the general steps in entry of each type of virus?
2. Unlike attachment, which requires no free energy ot
Discussion Questions: Lecture 6 & 7: Virus Transcription and Translation
Introduction: The key question addressed by these two lectures is the following: How do viruses
coordinate efficient expression of their genes:
- in the correct temporal order and
Lecture 4: Virus Attachment
1. Viruses typically recognize at least two classes of receptors, carbohydrate and protein.
How do the interactions between the virus and each class differ in terms of affinity or
stability? What are the different consequences
Discussion Questions: Lecture 8 & 9: Virus Structure
1) What are the functions of virus structural proteins?
2) What techniques are used to study virus structure and how do they differ?
3) Contrast common virus structures (i.e. spherical; helical, tail +
