    • Definitions of Terms for Viruses and Viral Infections
      • Virion – mature infectious virus particle
      • Capsid – protein shell that encloses and protects the viral nucleic acid
      • Capsomer – polymers of polypeptide chains which are the morphological units of icosahedral capsids
      • Core – internal part of a virus partciel, which consists of the nucleic acid and closely associated proteins
      • Nucleocapsid – structure composed of the capsid containing the nucleic acid or core
    • Definitions continued
      • Envelope – viral membrane, consisting of a lipid bilayer, proteins and glycoproteins
      • Peplomers (spike proteins)– viral proteins or glycoproteins that project from the envolope
    • Definitions continued
      • +ssRNA – single stranded RNA of the same polarity as messenger RNA
      • -ssRNA – single stranded RNA complementary to messenger RNA
      • vRNA – RNA of an intact ssRNA virus particle
      • cRNA – RNA that is complementary to the RNA of an intact ssRNA virus particle
      • cDNA – complementary DNA made from a viral RNA by recombinant procedures
    • Definitions continued
      • DNA dependent DNA polymerase (DNA polymerase) – an enzyme that uses DNA as a template for producing DNA
      • DNA dependent RNA polymerase (RNA polymerase) – an enzyme that uses DNA as a template for producing RNA
      • RNA dependent RNA polymerase (reverse transcriptase) – an enzyme that uses RNA as a template for producing DNA
    • Definitions continued
      • Transfection – in infection of mammalian or bacterial cells by vare viral nucleic acid
      • Transformation – stable hereitable change in the genetic makeup and phenotype of a cell resulting from the infection of that cell by a virus
      • Permissive cells – cells that support the complete virus life cycle, with production of infectious virus particles
    • Definitions continued:
      • Nonpermissive cells – cell which permit only part of the virus life cycle, usually transformed by viruses, especially DNA viruses
      • Productive infection – infection that results in th eproduction of infectious virus
      • Nonproductive infection – infection that has no infectious virus, cells may be transformed
      • Defective virus – virus that is not capable of going through its entire replicative cycle unless the cell is infected with a complete virus particle as well.
      • Cytopathic effect – observable damage to a cell resulting from virus infection
    • Structure of Animal Viruses
      • Size – not seen under the microscope
      • Nucleic Acid – varies
        • 12 codons -numerous codons
        • Segmented genomes
        • Either DNA or RNA, not both
      • Capside
        • Capsomeres protect nucleic acid

            • 20 facets with 12 vertices
            • Each hexomer has six neighbors
            • Number of capsomeres per capsid is used to classify icosahedral animal viruses
          • Helical
            • Naked helical viruses are all resistent
            • No naked human helical viruses
      • Viral envelopes
        • Surrounded by nucleocapsid
        • Formed by modified host cellular membrane
        • Contain host derived phosphlipid bilayer
        • Contains virus derived proteins and glycoproteins
          • Some are enzymes
          • Some provide attachment to cells
        • Envelopes are more fragile than naked viruses and are often inactivated by lipid solvents
    • Viral envelopes
      • Characteristics
        • Surrounded by nucleocapsid
        • Formed by modified host cellular membrane
        • Contain host derived phospholipid bilayer
        • Contains virus derived proteins and glycoproteins
          • Some are enzymes
          • Some provide attachment to cells
        • Envelopes are more fragile than naked viruses and are often inactivated by lipid solvents
          • Ether sensitive – have membranes
          • Ether resistent – have no membranes
    • Viral Proteins
      • Matrix proteins – M proteins
        • Found associated with the inner layer of the envelope, seem to make the envelope more rigid and help with organization of the virus particle
      • Fusion proteins – F proteins
        • Found on the envelope surface in some virus groups, cause viruses and virus-infected cells to fuse with uninfected cells
      • Nonstructural viral proteins
        • Enzymes found in the core of the virions of some virus types
    • Physiochemical Classification
      • 6 DNA and 13 RNA virus families, with one unclassified virus, classification is based on:
        • Chemical nature of the nucleic acid
        • Symmetry of the nucleocapsid
        • Presence or absence of the envelope
        • Number of capsomeres for isometric virions
        • Diameter of the nucleocapsids for helical viruses
      • Icosahedral viruses may be either DNA or RNA, enveloped or not
      • Helical viruses are all RNA, enveloped
    • Replication cycle, Productive Cycle
      • Attachment
      • Penetration
      • Uncoating
      • Transcription/translation of early mRNA
      • Replication of viral nucleic acid
      • Transcription/translation of late mRNA
      • Assembly of virions
      • Release
    • Replication cycle; Productive Infection
      • Attachment to specific receptor sites on the host cell membrane
        • Presence of specific receptor sites on the cell is the most important determinant of host specificity
        • Specie, tissue and physiological state of the cells determine the type of receptors present
        • Viruses tend to be host specific
    • Replication cycle; Productive Infection
      • Penetration by one of several methods:
        • Nonenveloped
          • Naked viruses may have rearrangement of the capsid protein after binding to cells, virus slips through by direct penetration of the membrane
          • Most are engulfed by receptor mediated endocytosis, with partial breakup of the capsid in the vacoule, followed by migration into the cyctplasm
        • Enveloped
          • Engulfement of virions by receptor mediated endocytosis via coated pits to coated vesicles which then fuse with lysosomes to form phagosomes
          • Fusion of the viral envelope and cell membrane, leaves the nucleocapsid inside the cell
    • Replication cycle; Productive Infection
      • Uncoating the viral nucleic acid
        • Attachment seems to lead to a conformation change in the capsid
        • Sometimes
          • cellular enzymes uncoat the viral nucleic acid
          • Synthesis of virus products may take place without completely uncoating the viral nucleic acid
    • Replication cycle; Productive Infection
      • Synthesis (Eclipse)
        • Use host cell enzymes in replcation
        • Synthesis of virus encoded macromolecules proceeds synthesis of:
          • early proteins
          • Viral genome proteins
          • Late proteins
        • Requires viral RNA and host machinery
    • Replication cycle; Productive Infection
      • Assembly
      • Release

        • Reverse phagocytosis
    • Mixed Virally Infected Cells
      • Mixed Viruses

      • Multiple Same Viruses
        • Recombination due to crossing over
        • Reassortment in viruses with segmented genomes
        • Reactivation can lead to rescue of a marker on an inactivated particle by superinfection of a live viris particle or virus particle inactivated by a different region

    • Consequences of a Viral Infection
      • As seen in tissue culture
        • Cell death and lysis  CPE
        • Proliferation of host cell  masses of cells piled on each other
        • Fusion of membranes of adjacent cells leading to a multinucleate giant cell, thereby forming a syncytia
        • Transformation into malignant cancer cells
          • Viral nucleic acid integrated into host DNA
          • Viral nucleid acid arranged in circular duplex (similar to a nucleosome)
        • Silent infection (latency) with no morphologogical change in the cell
