order of transfer of Hfr
from OriT to tra, closest to oriT (furthest from tra) most likely to be transferred
HPV infects which layer
the bsal layer and causes warts and increasing number of prickle cells, causing skin thickening and epithelial spikes to form
HPV in skin
infection at basal, replication in spinosum, maturation in granulosum and lucidum, release from corneum

aneurysm of aortic root
paramyxovirus avoidance of Ab
via spread from cell to cell via syncytia formation
OD on TCA risk
