Virus question

Post by SPAZ » Thu Mar 22, 2007 6:21 am

Once a virus breaks out of its lysogenic cycle, can the viruses it releases follow the lytic or lysogenic cycle, or can they just become lytic. If they can follow the lysogenic cycle, then how do they decide wether to become lysogenic or lytic?
confused! :?

They do not break out of the lysogenic cycle the process merely joins the lytic pathway more life u'd filter into a freeway.The lysogenic cycle always ends the same way as the lytic cycle.hope u understand wat I'm saying.
