What are the four steps of viral replication?

1 Answer

The SIX steps of viral replication are: adsorption, penetration, replication, assembly, maturation, release.


The virus first attaches to the host cell by binding to specific surface proteins.

The viral genetic material is then injected into the host cell.

Using the host's cell machinery, the viral genetic material is replicated, viral proteins are formed.

This genetic material, enzymes, and proteins are assembled.

The assembled material forms into virions.

The virions get released from the host cell.
