In Virology on kaplan notes... Reovirus is double stranded.
1. Is it right to call Reovirus Diploid?
In Virology on kaplan notes... Retrovirus are Diploid
2. Is it right to call retrovirus double stranded?
3. What does diploid mean?
4. What does double stranded mean?
Double stranded = The virus has two strands of nucleic acid
One strand is positive sense and the other negative sense.
Reovirus is double stranded (not diploid) because it has one positive and one negative strand of RNA.
Diploid = The virus has two strands of nucleic acid and one strand is a copy of the other.
Both strands of Retrovirus are positive sense
Reterovirus is Diploid (not double stranded) because both of its RNA strands are positive.
Hope I could explain and my own concept is correct . Please someone correct me if I am wrong.
