St. Andrews Picornavirus Group (554 words)
A characterisitic of a picornavirus infection is the dramatic changes which are brought about to the Golgi apparatus.
Tbe vesicles are thought to arise from the transitional smooth areas of the ER that produce transport vesicles that move proteins from the ER to the Golgi apparatus.
These results imply that picornavirus infection changes the balance of membrane budding and fusion that is normally maintained between the ER and Golgi compartments.
Medmicro Chapter 53 (4575 words)
The picornavirus virion is an icosahedral, nonenveloped, small (22 to 30 nm) particle.
When the portal of entry for a picornavirus is the mouth or nose, the virus infects and replicates in the nasopharyngeal epithelium and regional lymphoid tissues to give rise to asymptomatic infections or respiratory illnesses.
Control of picornavirus diseases depends largely on mass education of the public on the mode of virus transmission, stressing the importance of good personal hygiene, and on provision of a good sewage disposal system and uncontaminated water supply.
