    1. 1. VIRUSES Chapter 19
    2. 2. What is a virus? <ul><li>A virus is a submicroscopic infectious particle composed of a protein coat (capsid) and a nucleic acid core (either DNA or RNA). </li></ul><ul><li>Viruses are similar in size to a large protein macromolecule, generally smaller than 200 nm in diameter. </li></ul>
    3. 3. Discovery of Viruses <ul><li>Search for cause of tobacco mosaic disease led to viruses </li></ul><ul><li>The elusive virus was crystallized in 1935 by Stanley </li></ul>
    4. 5. Fig. 19-2 RESULTS 1 2 3 Extracted sap from tobacco plant with tobacco mosaic disease Passed sap through a porcelain filter known to trap bacteria Rubbed filtered sap on healthy tobacco plants 4 Healthy plants became infected
    5. 6. Viral Capsids <ul><li>Capsids are built from protein subunits called capsomeres </li></ul><ul><li>May be rod-shaped (helical viruses), polyhedral (icosahedral viruses) or more complex </li></ul><ul><li>Some viruses have membranous envelopes that help them infect hosts (flu virus </li></ul><ul><li>Bacteriophages, also called phages, are viruses that infect bacteria </li></ul>

    7. 8. <ul><li>Viruses are obligate intracellular parasites, which means they can reproduce only within a host cell </li></ul><ul><li>Each virus has a host range , a limited number of host cells that it can infect </li></ul>
    8. 9. Viral Reproduction <ul><li>Once a viral genome has entered a cell, the cell begins to manufacture viral proteins using the host cell’s materials (enzymes, ribosomes, tRNAs, amino acids, ATP, etc.) </li></ul>
    9. 10. Transcription and manufacture of capsid proteins Self-assembly of new virus particles and their exit from the cell Entry and uncoating Fig. 19-4 VIRUS 1 2 3 DNA Capsid 4 Replication HOST CELL Viral DNA mRNA Capsid proteins Viral DNA
    10. 11. <ul><li>Phages are the best understood of all viruses </li></ul><ul><li>Phages have two reproductive mechanisms: the lytic cycle and the lysogenic cycle </li></ul>
    11. 12. The Lytic Cycle <ul><li>The lytic cycle culminates in the death of the host cell by producing new phages and digests the host’s cell wall, releasing the progeny viruses </li></ul><ul><li>A phage that reproduces only by the lytic cycle is called a virulent phage </li></ul><ul><li>Bacteria have defenses against phages, including restriction enzymes that recognize and cut up certain phage DNA </li></ul>Animation: Phage T4 Lytic Cycle
    12. 13. Fig. 19-5-5 Phage assembly Head Tail Tail fibers Assembly Release Synthesis of viral genomes and proteins Entry of phage DNA and degradation of host DNA Attachment 1 2 4 5 3
    13. 14. The Lysogenic Cycle <ul><li>The lysogenic cycle replicates the phage genome without destroying the host </li></ul><ul><li>The viral DNA molecule is incorporated into the host cell’s chromosome and is called a prophage. </li></ul><ul><li>Every time the host divides, it copies the phage DNA and passes the copies to daughter cells </li></ul><ul><li>Viruses that can be lysogenic or lytic are called temperate phages. </li></ul>Animation: Phage Lambda Lysogenic and Lytic Cycles
    14. 15. Fig. 19-6 Phage DNA Phage The phage injects its DNA. Bacterial chromosome Phage DNA circularizes. Daughter cell with prophage Occasionally, a prophage exits the bacterial chromosome, initiating a lytic cycle. Cell divisions produce population of bacteria infected with the prophage. The cell lyses, releasing phages. Lytic cycle Lytic cycle is induced or Lysogenic cycle is entered Lysogenic cycle Prophage The bacterium reproduces, copying the prophage and transmitting it to daughter cells. Phage DNA integrates into the bacterial chromosome, becoming a prophage. New phage DNA and proteins are synthesized and assembled into phages.
    15. 16. Animal Viruses <ul><li>Classified as DNA or RNA viruses, single or double-stranded </li></ul><ul><li>Many have envelopes with glycoproteins that are specific for receptors. </li></ul><ul><li>The glycoproteins are made by the ER and added to the host cell’s membrane which envelopes the emerging viruses. </li></ul>

    19. 20. RNA Viruses <ul><li>The broadest variety of RNA genomes is found in viruses that infect animals </li></ul><ul><li>Retroviruses use reverse transcriptase to copy their RNA genome into DNA (HIV is ex.) </li></ul><ul><li>The viral DNA that is integrated into the host genome is called a provirus </li></ul><ul><li>Unlike a prophage, a provirus remains a permanent resident of the host cell </li></ul>

    22. 23. Evolution of Viruses <ul><li>Since viruses can reproduce only within cells, they probably evolved as bits of cellular nucleic acid </li></ul><ul><li>Candidates for the source of viral genomes are plasmids and transposons, small mobile DNA segments </li></ul><ul><li>Mimivirus , a double-stranded DNA virus, is the largest virus yet discovered </li></ul>
    23. 24. mimivirus Which came first, the cell or the mimivirus? The virus was first isolated in 1992 from amoebae growing in a water tower.
    24. 26. Viral diseases in animals <ul><li>Symptoms caused by </li></ul><ul><li>- toxins </li></ul><ul><li>- body’s defense mechanisms </li></ul><ul><li>Vaccines – weakened or derivatives of viral particles capable of causing an immune response </li></ul><ul><li>Antibiotics not effective </li></ul><ul><li>Some antiviral medications interfere with viral nucleic acid synthesis </li></ul>
    25. 27. Where do new viruses come from? <ul><li>Mutations of existing viruses </li></ul><ul><li>The dissemination of an existing virus to a more widespread population </li></ul><ul><li>Or spread between species </li></ul><ul><li>Epidemic – general outbreak of a disease </li></ul><ul><li>Pandemic – global epidemic </li></ul>

    27. 29. Plant viruses <ul><li>More than 2,000 types of viral diseases of plants are known and cause spots on leaves and fruits, stunted growth, and damaged flowers or roots </li></ul><ul><li>Most plant viruses have an RNA genome </li></ul><ul><li>Plant viral disease can spread by vertical transmission from parent plant or by horizontal transmission from an external source. </li></ul>

    29. 31. Viroids and Prions: The Simplest Infectious Agents <ul><li>Viroids are circular RNA molecules that infect plants and disrupt their growth </li></ul><ul><li>Prions are slow-acting, virtually indestructible infectious misfolded proteins that cause brain diseases in mammals </li></ul><ul><li>Prions propagate by converting normal proteins into the prion version </li></ul><ul><li>Scrapie in sheep, mad cow disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans are all caused by prions </li></ul>
