Viruses, including the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) which causes AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), are tiny infectious agents that need a host cell to replicate. Here’s how viruses, with a focus on HIV, operate:

  1. Attachment and Entry: Viruses first attach to the host cell. HIV targets cells with CD4 receptors, which are most commonly found on the surface of T cells, a type of immune cell. Once attached, the virus fuses with the cell membrane and releases its genetic material into the host cell.
  2. Replication: Viral genetic material (RNA in the case of HIV) enters the host cell’s nucleus. HIV uses an enzyme called reverse transcriptase to convert its RNA into DNA. This DNA is then integrated into the host’s DNA with the help of another viral enzyme called integrase.
  3. Transcription and…
