Virulent phages

Virulent phages

Virulent bacteriophages start their life cycle when they adsorb to a permissive host. They inject their genetic material into the host and start to produce viral proteins and copies of the virus genome, using bacterial resources and biosynthetic apparatus.

 

Progeny virus particles are formed and after completing the cycle, they are released after host cell lysis. The animation showing the life cycle of a virulent bacteriophage is shown below:
