Nucleic acid and the protein coat, the capsid.4.Use the diagram to help explain typical viral reproduction.5.Identify the cycle used by the virulent phage.Virulent phages use the lytic cycle which is a reproductive cycle that culminates in death of the host cell and releases other phages from the burst.____________________________________________________________________________________Virus enters cell and is uncoated releasing viral DNA and capsid proteinsHost enzymes replicate the viral genomeHost enzymes transcribe the viral genome into viral mRNA, which other host enzymes useto make more viral proteins.Viral genomes and capsidproteins self-assemble into new virus particles which exit the cell.
