Which of the following virus families has double stranded DNA in four diffrent isomers?
B) Herpesviruses ?
really confused by this question. Best guess at what the question is asking is which virus goes through 4 different intermediates? Or is it asking which virus family comes in different flavors?
Pox, if I remember correctly, is a dsDNA. Replicates in the cytoplasm though and carries its own virion assoc DNA polymerase.
Herps = dsDNA
Rabies = Rhabdo virus = neg ssRNA. bullet shaped
Orthomyox = Influenza virus = neg ssRNA, 8 segmens
retrovirus = dsRNA
answer = e) retro?
Ans is Herpes virus
It has double strands which is unusual because it has terminal and internal repeat sequences.
imbebo ...it s for you
retroviruses are not dsRNA
they are ssRNA+ with 2 chains
i red this in nester cause i ve been confused ..if u look the mmrs retro is ss
I think Herpesvirus
