WHAT ARE LYSOGENIC AND LYTIC CYCLE?
Asked by sommya naberia | 7th May, 2013, 08:37: AM
Lysogenic cycle, is one of two methods of viral reproduction.Lysogeny is characterized by integration of the bacteriophage nucleic acid into the host bacterium's genome or formation of a circular replicon in the bacterium's cytoplasm.
The lytic cycle results in the destruction of the infected cell and its membrane. The major difference between the lytic and lysogenic phage cycles is that in the lytic phage, the viral DNA exists as a separate molecule within the bacterial cell, and replicates separately from the host bacterial DNA.
