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

Induction of Lytic Cycle

Lytic cycle is one one of the two alternative life cycles of a virus inside a host cell, whereby ... host cell to infect other cells. This method of replication is contrasted with the lysogenic cycle, whereby the virus that has infected a cell attaches itself to the host DNA ...

Induction of Lytic Cycle

How would a lytic cycle be induced when a prophage is dormant in its host's genome? I've read about lytic/lysogenic cycles a couple times but text books are always really vague about what would cause an induction. ...

Lytic and Lysogenic cycles

fundamental difference: lytic cycle: infection with viral DNA leads directly to replication of the virus and subsequently to lysis of the bacterial cell lysogenic cycle: infection with viral DNA leads to replication of a prophage (a molecule of DNA ...
