(Figure based upon Raoult et al. 2-megabase genome sequence of mimivirus. ) CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION – THE IMPACT OF VIRUSES ON OUR VIEW OF LIFE of viruses does not contain genetic evidence of ever having encoded enzymes involved in energy metabolism. This is convincing evidence that the viruses currently investigated did not evolve from free-living organisms.
As will be discussed in later chapters, a number of different viruses exhibiting different details of replication and spread could, potentially, be causative agents of such diseases. Animal and plant pathogens are other potential sources of disruptive viral infections. Sporadic outbreaks of viral disease in domestic animals, for example, vesicular stomatitis virus in cattle and avian influenza in chickens, result in significant economic and personal losses. Rabies in wild animal populations in the eastern United States has spread continually during the past half-century.
Many other examples of mosaicism resulting from persisting virus infections of floral or leaf tissue have been observed in plants. However, many specific details of the association are not as well characterized in plants as in animal and bacterial cells. Stages of virus replication in the cell Various patterns of replication as applied to specific viruses, as well as the effect of viral infections on the host cell and organism, are the subject of many of the following chapters in this book. The best way to begin to understand patterns of virus replication is to consider a simple general case: the productive infection cycle – this is shown schematically in Fig.
