Encyclopedia > SsDNA virus

A DNA virus is a virus that has DNA as its genetic material and does not use an RNA intermediate during replication. Viruses that either have RNA as their genetic material or use an RNA intermediate during replication are called RNA viruses. The DNA can either be single- (ssDNA) or double-stranded (dsDNA), the latter being more common. A common alternate meaning of virus is computer virus. ... Space-filling model of a section of DNA molecule Deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA) is a nucleic acid that contains the genetic instructions specifying the biological development of all cellular forms of life (and many viruses). ... Genetic material is the material used to store genetic information for a living organism. ... Ribonucleic acid (RNA) is a nucleic acid consisting of a string of covalently-bound nucleotides. ... An RNA virus is a virus that either uses RNA as its genetic material, or whose genetic material passes through an RNA intermediate during replication. ...

The Microinjection Workshop (2296 words)
The primary importance of H-1 virus is as a model for experimentally produced malformations in the CNS and skeletal system of rats.
Reports of H-1 virus affecting research are limited to hepatocellular necrosis in rats exposed to pathogens or chemicals causing liver injury and possibly to a reduction of the incidence of Yersinia -associated arthritis, although in the latter studies other copathogens may also have been present.
Minute virus of mice (MVM) is an ssDNA virus of the family Parvoviridae and therefore shares many biological features with other murine parvoviruses such as mouse parvovirus-1, H-1 virus, and Kilham rat virus.
