OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.

OneClass has allowed me to catch up with my most difficult course! #lifesaver

Viral Replication and Prions Viral Replication - Always requires a host cell – viruses are obligate intracellular parasites and they control the hosts - This control over the host tells us: o Pathogenicity o Transmission o Level of immune response - How they replicate could indicate how we could control the infection Steps in viral multiplication (T-even phage; lytic cycle) 1. Adsorption - Attachment - Brought about by random collisions - High specificity o Flagella o Pili o Fimbriae o Cell wall o Receptors o Cell membrane 2. Penetration - Lysozyme dissolves a hole in the cell wall - The virus plunges its tail through the layers (like a hypodermic needle) - The DNA is injected 3. Replication - The entry hole is sealed to re-stabilize the cell wall - Nucleic acids of the viral genome are copied - The virus shuts down all host cell gene expression - Direct synthesis of proteins for the next capsid begins - In the late stage large volumes of lysozyme are produced 4. Maturation and Assembly - Parts of the new viruses self-assemble into mature viruses as they become available Transduction - Host DNA is put into the viral heads rather than the viral DNA - This will result in no infection in the next host, but it can cause evolutionary change (i.e. antibiotic resistance) 5. Release - Lysozyme causes the cell to lyse - The new bacteriophages are released to find a new host Lysogenic or Temperate Phage (Lambda phage) - Steps 1 and 2 are the same as in the lytic phage - In the third step, replication does not occur, the host cell is not shut down. Instead, the viral DNA is integrated into the host genome. - As the host continues to replicate itself, it is passing on the virus Prophage: the host cell after the viral DNA has been integrated into the host DNA Lysogenic conversion: the addition of new DNA results in a change in the phenotype of the cell Induction - When the host cell is dying, it identifies the foreign viral DNA and cuts it out of the sequence - This triggers the virus to take over - The lytic cycle begins: the virus shuts down the host cells and tries to replicate as quickly as possible before the cell lyses Steps in replication of animal viruses 1. Adsorption - Specific interaction with the peplomers allows for attachment *host range: what hosts can be recognized by the virus (i.e. rabies is able to target any mammal)* 2. Penetration - once inside, uncoating occurs: the breaking down of the capsid to release the genome 3 mechanisms for penetration Direct penetration - Done by some naked viruses - Most rare method - Virus attacks, punctures cell, and inserts the genome  i.e. poliovirus Endocytosis - Done by most enveloped viruses and some naked viruses - Virus attaches to receptor molecules on the cell - Cell is stimulated to endocytize the entire virus  Herpesvirus Fusion - Done by some enveloped viruses - The viral envelope fuses with the cytoplasmic membrane and releases the virus inside  Measles virus 3. Replication - DNA viruses: replication/assembly occurs in the nucleus - RNA viruses: replication/assembly occurs in the cytosol Types of Genomes dsDNA - All cellular machinery is used - Since cells normally replicate double-stranded DNA, they know what to do ssDNA - Host cellular RNA polymerase s
