cellular receptors of herpes simplex Which are the major viral glycoproteins that mediate viruscell fusion How do immediate early genes of herpes simplex turn on their transcription Does herpes simplex virus codes for its own DNA polymerase or does it use the cellular DNA polymerase I Where within the cell is the viral genome encapsidated within capsids and what is head fullquot encapsidation means What is the statement herpesvirus gene expression is sequentially ordered and coordinately regulatedquot is referring to Which are the most important immediate early regulatory genes of herpes simplex virus Alpha 40222747 What is the principal function of the herpes simplex aTlF protein Which are the five immediate early genes of herpes simplex virus What kind of proteins do the early genes of herpes simples code for What kind of proteins do the late genes of herpes simplex code for Which is the only vaccine currently licensed for a herpesvirus How does acyclovir Zovirax work to stop herpes viral replication Do herpes viruses cause ocular disease Do herpes viruses cause encephalitis Why monkey B virus is lethal to humans but benign for monkeys Which is the major origin of EBV viral replication during latency Which viral protein is required for viral DNA replication during latency Which is the most important transacting factor protein that is responsible for switching the transcriptional program of EBV from latency to lytic cycle 37 Which are some of the diseases associated with EBV infections 38 What is the current theory of why EBV could cause Burkitt s lymphoma epidemics in Africa 39 What is the basic principle of representational difference analysis RDA and how was it applied to discover the new herpesvirus KSHV or HHV 8 40 Is KSHV widespread among the human population just like EBV 41 Why is KSHV referred to as one of the primary examples of piracy 43 Which are some of the KSHV genes which may contribute to Kaposi s sarcoma 44 Which are some of the diseases associated with KSHV infections Poxviruses 1 Which is the most feared disease caused by poxviruses 2 How long does it take to develop smallpox disease after infection 3 Which are the two major subfamilies of poxviruses 4 Is the poxviruses large enough to be visualized by a light microscope 5 What is the structure of the poxvirus genome 6 How does the poxvirus genome initiate replication from a double stranded genome covalently closed at both ends 7 Where does the poxvirus lifecycle occur within cells 8 Which is the most probable receptorforvaccinia virus 9 Is gene expression of poxivus carried out by cellular or strictly viral enzymes 10 Where does assembly of poxviruses occur within cells 11 What is the the term comet tail refers to 12 How does poxvirus evade
