  • Hepatitis B Virus Conclusion

    The core of the hepatitis B virus is generally in the shape of an icosahedron. Within the virus, there are two strands of DNA, one smaller than the other, which is circular. HBV is around 42 nm in width, and the core is surrounded in a 4nm thick coat. They are enveloped, which means they are more susceptible to being destroyed, because the envelope is very thin. Viruses in general are very small, much smaller than bacteria, and HBV is no different. (Image:…

Partially single-stranded and double-stranded, it is the only DNA virus in its family of hepatitis viruses. (Bauman, 2014). Its replication method is similar to a retrovirus, utilizing the enzyme reverse transcriptase to engineer viral DNA from a single-stranded DNA and fusing it with the host cell’s…
