Lysogenic cycle

Lysogenic cycle

(Science: virology, microbiology) One of the ways of virus reproduction. ( other one:lytic cycle)Bacteriophage's nucleic acid fuses together with the hosts nucleic acid, so that genetic information of the virus is transmitted through daughter cells.

viral replication cycle in which the virus's nucleic acid is integrated into the host cells chromosome; a provirus is formed and replicated each time the host cell reproduces; the host cell is not killed until the lytic cycle is activated
