Term:pore-mediated entry of viral genome into host cell
go back to main search page
Accession:GO:0044694 term browser browse the term
Definition:Injection by a non-enveloped virus of the viral genome into the host cytoplasm through creation of a pore or channel in the host cell membrane(s). Usually mediated by a viral pore-forming peptide associated with the viral capsid or bacteriophage tail.
Comment:This mechanism is used by animal viruses such as poliovirus. Various tailed bacteriophages also carry specialized proteins which open a pore or a channel in the host membrane(s) to allow genome delivery into host cytoplasm.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: pore-mediated penetration of viral genome into host cell;   viral entry via genome injection;   viral genome translocation
 narrow_synonym: viral genome delivery via icosahedral vertex
 related_synonym: membrane puncture-mediated penetration of viral genome into host cell;   viral pore-forming protein
