Why it is important to know the steps of multiplication of a eukaryotic virus?
It is important to know the steps of multiplication of eukaryotic virus to differentiate viruses as each kind of virus family has its own way of entering ,replicating,exiting the host cell.example:there are 8 ways for the virus to cross the host membrane,11 ways to replicate their nucleicacid and more than 4routes to exit.
I.e with the information of the steps of multiplication of eukaryotic virus:
- The disease is prevented by blocking certain interactions between the human and viral proteins,thereby stopping the viral replication and transmission.
- The mRNA can be manipulated and the disease causing genes can be removed preventing the formation of aggressive nature of virus.
- The vaccines are formed by manipulation of its mRNA and weakening the virus thus decreasing its replication cycle and formation of least number of viruses.
- The antiviral drugs are produced which may inhibit a particular step of replication decreasing its multiplication.
