Lysogeny , or the lysogenic cycle , is one of two cycles of viral reproduction the lytic cycle being the other.

The lytic cycle results in the destruction of the infected cell and its membrane. Bacteriophages that only use the lytic cycle are called virulent phages in contrast to temperate phages. In the lytic cycle, the viral DNA exists as a separate free floating molecule within the bacterial cell, and replicates separately from the host bacterial DNA, whereas in the lysogenic cycle, the viral DNA is located within the host DNA. This is the key difference between the lytic and lysogenic bacterio phage cycles. The lytic cycle, which is also referred to as the "reproductive cycle" of the bacteriophage, is a six-stage cycle. The six stages are: attachment, penetration, transcription, biosynthesis, maturation, and lysis.
Viruses are obligate intracellular parasites. Viruses must gain entry into target cells and usurp the host cellular machinery to produce a progeny virus. Here, the steps involved in the virus life cycle are described with emphasis on entry and exit. Therefore, viruses must gain entry into target cells and usurp the host cellular machinery to propagate and to produce progeny viruses. Here, we focus on entry and exit, in which the commonality of mechanisms among viruses prevails. A virus encounters multiple obstacles during its journey to enter the host cells. Cellular membranes pose as barriers for the invaders.
Viruses are often very specific as to which hosts and which cells within the host they will infect. This feature of a virus makes it specific to one or a few species of life on earth. So many different types of viruses exist that nearly every living organism has its own set of viruses that try to infect its cells. Even the smallest and simplest of cells, prokaryotic bacteria, may be attacked by specific types of viruses. Bacteriophages are viruses that infect bacteria. Bacteriophages may have a lytic cycle or a lysogenic cycle, and a few viruses are capable of carrying out both.
Viruses like the ones pictured above are very tiny nonliving particles. Viruses do not carry out respiration. They also do not grow or reproduce on their own. A virus needs a living cell in order to reproduce. The living cell in which the virus reproduces is called a host cell. Let's look at what happens when a virus attacks our cells.
The upcoming discussion will update you about the difference between Lysogenic and Lytic Phases of a Virus. It is called pro-phage or provirus. The pro-phage or provirus replicates only once along with the replication of host genome so that a single particle is transferred to a daughter cell. Top Menu BiologyDiscussion.
Bacteriophage , also called phage or bacterial virus , any of a group of viruses that infect bacteria. Bacteriophages were discovered independently by Frederick W. Bacteriophages also infect the single-celled prokaryotic organisms known as archaea. Thousands of varieties of phages exist, each of which may infect only one type or a few types of bacteria or archaea. Phages are classified in a number of virus families; some examples include Inoviridae, Microviridae, Rudiviridae, and Tectiviridae. Like all viruses, phages are simple organisms that consist of a core of genetic material nucleic acid surrounded by a protein capsid. There are three basic structural forms of phage: an icosahedral sided head with a tail, an icosahedral head without a tail, and a filamentous form.
К Хейлу можно вернуться чуть позже. Сосредоточившись, Сьюзан перезагрузила Следопыта и нажала клавишу ВВОД. Терминал пискнул. СЛЕДОПЫТ ЗАПУЩЕН Сьюзан знала, что пройдет несколько часов, прежде чем Следопыт вернется. Она проклинала Хейла, недоумевая, каким образом ему удалось заполучить ее персональный код и с чего это вдруг его заинтересовал ее Следопыт. Встав, Сьюзан решительно направилась подошла к терминалу Хейла.
