Analysis of BK virus life cycle


Polyomaviruses are small unenvelope DNA viruses, whose replication take place in cell nucleus. Despite its small genome size, these viruses can cause significant changes in the host cell, one of the most significant is cell transformation. Most studies of human pathogens from this family is the focus of clinical research, but do not provide enough information about the individual events of the life cycle of viruses. This thesis mainly aims to determining the exact time when the creation of the individual viral products and generate a timeline of events during natural infection in cells that are targets for BKV in the human body. It was found that the time course of the life cycle of BKV is very similar to those for model polyomaviruses MPyV and SV40 and in permissive cells takes about 40 - 50 hours
