Also question is, what are the steps in viral replication?
- Viral replication involves six steps: attachment, penetration, uncoating, replication, assembly, and release.
- During attachment and penetration, the virus attaches itself to a host cell and injects its genetic material into it.
Beside above, what are the 4 steps in the correct order of virus infection? Step 1: Attachment: The virus attaches itself to the target cell. Step 2: Penetration: The virus is brought into the target cell. Step 3: Uncoating and Replication: The enveloped virus loses its envelope, and viral RNA is released into the nucleus, where it is replicated. Step 4: Assembly: Viral proteins are assembled.
Similarly one may ask, what are the 5 steps of the viral life cycle?
Many viruses follow several stages to infect host cells. These stages include attachment, penetration, uncoating, biosynthesis, maturation, and release.
Where does viral replication take place?
Replication is within the cytoplasm. Viruses with segmented genomes for which replication occurs in the cytoplasm and for which the viral RNA-dependent RNA polymerase produces monocistronic mRNAs from each genome segment.
