list and describe the structural Components of viruses - capsid built from capsomeres encloses the viral genome - Some viruses have accessory structures to help them infect their hosts - Membranous envelope surrounds the capsids of flu viruses - elongated Icosahedral capsid heads and protein tail pieces are on t-even phages explain why viruses are obligate intracellular Parasites can only reproduce w/in host cells because they lack metabolic Enzymes, ribosomes, and other equipment for making proteins *identifying host Cells "lock and key" fit between proteins on the outside of the virus And specific receptor molecules on the host's surface (which originally evolved For functions that benefit the host)

Describe bacterial defenses against Phages while phages Have the potential to wipe out a bacterial colony in just hours, bacteria have Defenses against phages
- natural selection favors bacterial mutants with receptor sites that are no Longer recognized by a particular type of phage - bacteria produce restriction Enzymes that recognize and cut up foreign DNA, including certain phage DNA - Their activity restricts the ability of the phage to infect the bacterium - Chemical modifications to the bacteria's own DNA prevent its destruction by Restriction enzymes

distinguish between lytic vs lysogenic Cycles, using phage lambda as an example lytic cycles: destroys the host lysogenic Cycles: phage genome replicates without destroying the host cells Which viral Genes are expressed during the prophage stage?Explain the significance of Prophage gene expression in the lysogenic cycle and to viral disease. - one of The viral genes codes for a protein that represses most other prophage genes - As a result, the phage genome is largely silent - every time the host divides, It copies the phage DNA and passes the copies to daughter cells (thus Propagating without killing the host cells on which they depend) *reproductive Cycle of an enveloped virus - glycoproteins on the envelope bind to specific Receptors on the host's membrane - envelope fuses with the host's membrane, Transporting the capsid and the viral genome inside - in the reproductive cycle Of an enveloped virus with an RNA genome, viral glycoproteins for new envelopes Are made by ribosomes bound to the ER of the host cell - viral glycoproteins Are than glycosylated by cellular enzymes in the ER and Golgi apparatus - these Glycoproteins are transported to the cell surface, where they wrap themselves In membrane as they bud from the cell Describe the Reproductive cycle of an HIV retrovirus. - after HIV enters the host cell, Reverse transcriptase molecules are released into the cytoplasm and catalyze The synthesis of viral DNA
- newly made viral DNA enters the cell's nucleus and is inserted as a permanent Provirus into a chromosome - host's RNA polymerase transcribes the proviral DNA Into RNA molecules that can function both as mRNA for the synthesis of viral Proteins and as genomes for new virus particles released from the cell

List some characteristics that viruses Share with living organisms and explain why viruses do not fit our usual Definition of life - use of genetic code - an isolated virus is biologically Inert, and yet it has a genetic program written in the universal language of Life - obligate intracellular parasites that cannot reproduce independently, it Is hard to deny their evolutionary connection to the living world but found a Way to reproduce - because they depend on cells for their own propagation, it Is reasonable to assume that they evolved after the first cells appeared. Don't Fit usual def of life: ii. They can reproduce only within a host cell iii. No ribosomes to make proteins iv. Generally no source of energy Describe the evidence that viruses probably evolved from Fragments of cellular nucleic acids.

most molecular Biologists favor the hypothesis that the earliest viruses were naked bits of Nucleic acids that passed between cells via injured cell surfaces
- evolution of capsid genes may have facilitated the infection of undamaged Cells

Explain how viral infections may cause Disease. - some viruses Damage or kill cells by triggering the release of hydrolytic enzymes from Lysosomes
- some viruses cause the infected cell to produce toxins that lead to disease Symptoms - other viruses have molecular components, such as envelope proteins, That are toxic Describe the three Processes that lead to the emergence of new viral diseases.
1) mutation of existing viruses is a Major source of new viral diseases - RNA viruses tend to have high mutation Rates because replication of their nucleic acid lacks proofreading - some Mutations create new viral strains with sufficient genetic differences from Earlier strains that they can infect individuals who had acquired immunity to These earlier strains 2) viral disease can spread from a small, isolated Population to become a widespread epidemic - AIDS went unnamed and virtually Unnoticed for decades before spreading around the world - technological and Social factors, including affordable international travel, blood transfusion Technology, sexual promiscuity, and the abuse of intravenous drugs, allowed a Previously rare disease to become a global scourge 3) spread of existing Viruses from one host species to another - estimated that about three-quarters Of new human diseases originated in other animals Distringuish b/w The horizontal vs. Vertical routes of viral transmission in plants. horizontal: a plant is infected with the Virus by an external source - plants are more susceptible if their protective Epidermis is damaged, perhaps by wind, chilling, injury, or insects - insects Are often carriers of viruses, transmitting disease from plant to plant vertical: A plant inherits a viral infection from a parent - may occur by asexual Propagation or in sexual reproduction via infected seeds Explain how a non-replicating protein can act as a Transmissible pathogen - a prion is a misfolded form of a normal brain protein
- when the prion gets into a cell with the normal form of the protein, the Prion can convert the normal protein to the prion version, creating a chain Reaction that increases their numbers Explain Viroids and prions.
Viroids are circular RNA molecules that infect plants and Disrupt their growth. Prions are slow-acting, virtually indestructible Infectious proteins that cause brain diseases in mammals Prions propagate by Converting normal proteins into the prion version Scrapie in sheep, mad cow Disease, and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease in humans are all caused by prions
