Example text

For viruses that have entered via an endosome, fusion of the endosome with a lysosome results in a sharp decrease in the pH of their environment. This results in spontaneous disaggregation of the viral capsid. 4. Macromolecular synthesis. This process encompasses the production of multiple copies of the viral genome, and multiple copies of the viral proteins. Viruses utilize the relevant host cell organelles to perform these functions. e. mRNA), which can be appropriately processed by the host cell ribosomes.

Viral proteins subserve a number of functions including formation of capsid, attachment to target cells, enzymatic activity mostly concerned with macromolecular synthesis, and interference with normal cellular function. Lipid envelopes are derived from budding through host cell membranes. Viral attachment proteins must be inserted in these envelopes. Stripping of lipid results in loss of infectivity through loss of attachment proteins. Classification of viruses Viruses are classified into families, subfamilies, genera and individual strains or species on the basis of a number of characteristics including the nature of the viral genome, the symmetry of the capsid, the presence or absence of a lipid envelope, and the size and shape of mature virions.

Viral envelopes. These are composed of lipid, and derived from membranes of the host cell, acquired as the virus buds through when exiting the cell. As the lipid envelope is on the outside of the virus, the viral attachment proteins must be inserted into the envelope. If the envelope is stripped off, the attachment proteins are also removed, rendering the virus non-infective. g. with 70% alcohol, or detergents). Enveloped viruses are therefore generally more fragile and more easily inactivated than non-enveloped ones.
