They don't penetrate: DNA viruses don't have the capability of entering the cell membrane. As such when one sees DaNA on tumor membrane it is from mutated mitochondrial DNA. The RNA viruses penetrate the cell and elaborate reverese transcriptase to allow transfection of the nuclear DNA. This enzyme only occurs with the retroviruses. ...Read more
Which ones?: There are dozens of variants of HIV and West Nile virus. I believe the genomes for all of them have been sequenced and the sequences published. There are many open-source sequence-alignment software packages available for download. Many run better under Linux than Windows. Do you have a preference? ...Read more
I took a HCV RNA test. My doctor said that the virus is not replicating. Does this mean i'm cured or it's hibernating?
Hi, what are the antiviral drug for dengue virus spesifically the rna-dependant RNA polymerase as the potential target? Thanks
None yet: Dengue fever and its severe form, dengue hemorrhagic fever, have no cure nor vaccine. One path of research is to find a way to use nucleoside analogs to block the viral rna-dependent RNA polymerase (coded by ns5), which copies the viral genetic material. So far, no drug has been approved yet. Not sure if anyone has found and submitted such a drug to the fda (food and drug administration). ...Read more
Tested positive for hpv RNA rather than DNA, does that mean my immune system will not be able to clear the virus? Normal cytology...

Yes/no: Yes you have it in your system & no you don't need additional testing right now.These strains belong to a family of virus well known for hibernating for long periods in the tissues.You may shed virus off & on without any symptoms.If it ever starts a problem it might be decades from now, if you are one of the unlucky ones.Just do your regular testing as advised ...Read more
Can HIV RNA test detect dead virus? Reason for asking, if nurse made a mistake taking blood or transferring it to lab
My tes apositive antibody but a negative HCV RNA virus c genotype 4 aftter one year same result is it mean i am clear?
Most likely clear: The positive HCV antibody indicates that you were exposed to the virus at some point in the past and your immune system reacted with producing antibodies. The negative RNA implies that there is no viable virus that can be detected by this test in your blood (your immune system at the time of exposure succeeded in eliminating the virus) ...Read more
