Definition
 
enEnglish
Lysogeny definition: The phenomenon by which a temperate phage incorporates itself into the DNA of a bacterial host, establishing a kind of symbiotic relation between PROPHAGE and bacterium which results in the perpetuation of the prophage in all the descendants of the bacterium. Upon induction (VIRUS ACTIVATION) by various agents, such as ultraviolet radiation, the phage is released, which then becomes virulent and lyses the bacterium.

lysogeny definition: The incorporation of a bacteriophage genome into the genome of its bacterial host organism. [ISBN:0781702534]
provirus excision definition: The molecular events that lead to the excision of a viral genome from the host genome. [GOC:mlg]
provirus integration definition: The molecular events that lead to the integration of a viral genome into the host genome. [ISBN:0121585336]
prophage definition: the genome of a phage which is perpetuated in the host cell by integration into the host chromosome or by plasmid formation.
Prophages definition: Genomes of temperate BACTERIOPHAGES integrated into the DNA of their bacterial host cell. The prophages can be duplicated for many cell generations until some stimulus induces its activation and virulence.
provirus maintenance definition: The molecular events that maintain a viral genome integrated into a host genome. [GOC:mlg]
