Its length is approximately 5 µm. Based on these dimensions and shapes of the cells shown, the bacterial cell is on the order of 1/500th of the volume of the eukaryotic cell shown. 00 × 10−7 m). CHAPTER 2 AN OUTLINE OF VIRUS REPLICATION AND VIRAL PATHOGENESIS to a state of coexistence between the cell and infecting virus, which can persist for as long as the life of the host. This process can be a dynamic one in which there is a small amount of virus produced constantly, or it can be passive where the viral genome is carried as a “passenger” in the cell with little or no evidence of viral gene expression.
Pande, M. Petroski, M. Rice, J. Singh, J. Stringer, and Y-F. Zhang. We were aided in the writing of the second edition by comments from Robert Nevins (Milsap College), Sofie Foley (Napier University), David Glick (King’s College), and David Fulford (Edinboro University of Pennsylvania). Many people contributed to the physical process of putting this book together. R. Spaete of the Aviron Corp carefully read every page of the manuscript and suggested many important minor and a couple of major changes.
In this case, stress to the lysogenic bacteria could release infectious virus long after the establishment of the initial infection. These two modes of infection of host populations by viruses, which can be accurately modeled by mathematical methods developed for studying predator–prey relationships in animal and plant populations, are now understood to be general for virus–host interactions. Indeed, persistent infections with low or no levels of viral disease are universal in virus–host ecosystems that have evolved together for extended periods – it is only upon the introduction of a virus into a novel population that widespread disease and host morbidity occurs.
