Viral infection diagnosed by electrom microscopy
An acyclic guanosine analog that is mediated by CMV-specific protein kinase phosphotransferase UL97. Competitively inhibits viral DNA polymerase and cause termination of DNA elonga
Only dsRNA virus
Genome plus capsid
Type of infection that cause recurrent disease, no viral replication, invisible to immune system, and the host is infected for life.
Capsids are built from this.
Diploid virus
Virus that causes gastroenteritis and lasts for 24-48 hours.
HBV, HPV, and HSV are diagnosed by this method.
Viruses transferred by mosquito bites. Arthrood-borne viruses.
Used for CMV prophylaxis or CMV retinitis treatment
What phase involves viral assembly and intracellular virus is increasing.
Drug that requires phosphorylations by host cell enzymes. May still have an effect even if the virus evolved the HSV Thymidine Kinase. Not for systemic use.
When viruses clog up the cytosol or nucleus.
Transmitted by direct contact usually from biting.
Drug that competes with deoxyGTP for the viral DNA polymerase and causes chain termination following incorporation into viral DNA.
Name a virus that can infect multiple organ systems.
Entire structure of a virus.
Drug used to treat CMV retinitis that requires Host Kinase. It must be administered with Probenecid to reduce nephrotoxicity.
Adverse reaction of Ganciclovir.
Virus infection fails to be cleared by the immune system.
Only ssDNA virus.
Initial or local symptoms (1-8 days) when systemic viruses first multiply locally.
A way for HIV, HBV, or polio to spread to secondary sites of infection.
Most viruses cause what type of infection?
Viral infection diagnosed by immunofluorescence.
An acyclic guanosine derivative that is active against HSV-1, HSV-2, and VZV.
L-valyl prodrug of acyclovir that is more effective in treating VZV than acyclovir
When viruses spread in the body.
What phase involves viral uncoating, DNA/RNA replication, and protein synthesis of the virus in the cell.
Transmission by animal contact.
Converted to penicyclovir after oral administration.
Viruses that infect the gut
Protein coats that surround viral nucleic acids.
ssRNA that is used directly as mRNA
Used by viruses to bind to cell surface receptors.
Most viruses are diagnosed by this method.
Phosphorylation independent drug used to treat CMV retinitis. It inhibits viral DNA/RNA polymerase and HIV reverse transcriptase.
Name an adverse reaction of Acyclovir
Drug that inhibits viral-cell fusion.
