The best example of these is the interferon response. This “early” stage or incubation period of disease can last from only a few days to many years, depending on the specific virus. In fact, probably many virus infections go no further than this first stage, with clearance occurring without any awareness of the infection at all. Also, some virus infections lead only to replication localized at the site of original entry. In such a case, extensive virus spread need not occur, although some interaction with cells of the immune system must occur if the animal host is to mount an immune response.

The dimensions of plant and animal cells can vary widely, but an average diameter of around 50 µm (5 × 10−5 m) is a fair estimate. Bacterial cells also show great variation in size and shape, but the one shown here is Escherichia coli, the true “workhorse” of molecular biologists. Its length is approximately 5 µm. Based on these dimensions and shapes of the cells shown, the bacterial cell is on the order of 1/500th of the volume of the eukaryotic cell shown. 00 × 10−7 m). CHAPTER 2 AN OUTLINE OF VIRUS REPLICATION AND VIRAL PATHOGENESIS to a state of coexistence between the cell and infecting virus, which can persist for as long as the life of the host.
