Lytic Cycle Virus

The lytic is the viral reproductive cycle in which a virus supports all the metabolic activities of a cell; replicates many times and destroys his host cell.



  1. Why tf did our teachers assign this stupid shit, did they even watch the video?? It doesn't work, lol.

  2. This is the quality content I'm subbing for right here

  3. okay i gotta watch this for bio hw but those green lines can go die

  4. Teacher sent me, such a lame video (no offense to old school though) just don't like biology.

  5. Stupid video came here from a stupid teacher ??

  6. I do to. the thought of some organism taking over your cells by injecting it's dna into it, and removing your DNA, and making many of itself in your cell until it bursts, when the viruses all come out. D: this makes me not want to get viruses even more…

  7. I don't know why but I find that really scary.

  8. what is the different of virus reproduction and replication

  9. thank you so much this helped me understand the cycle so much

  10. good god…it is speading…it is now 14 :O

  11. since this is a t4 bacteriophage, shouldn't the virus be attacking a bacterium?

  12. this is really helpful I understand it now thanks!

  13. @AL11RAN lmao..ur incorrect hun!! do your research or study your book first next time.

  14. lol I was in a test and needed help! Thanks 🙂

  15. just a note about the bursting part:
    The phage directs the production of lysozyme, which is an enzyme that breaks down the cell wall.
    With a damaged cell wall, osmosis causes the cell to swell and THEN burst, releasing the phages.

  16. @malevcc viruses have big jugs 😉

  17. thnx a lot but i hate the green thing 😛

  18. these viruses look like spiders

  19. 6 viruses disliked this video lol

  20. the green flashing is CRAP

  21. isnt it because of this also that Patanjali teaches us the concept of non-attachment

  22. That was super HELPFUL THANKS!!!
