Immune Cells in Immune Response
The Ebola virus replicates at an unusually high rate that overwhelms the protein synthesis of infected cells and the hosts immune defenses. The host then has a strong inflammatory response that is equally bad. Both the adaptive immune and inflammatory systems respond to the infection at the same time.
Steps for Virus Replication
When the virus infects the host's body it immediately searches for a host cell. and begins these steps:1. Attachment- The virus attaches to a host cell.
2. Viral Entry- The virus enters the endosomes of the cell by macrophinocytosis or clathrin-mediated endocytosis.
3. Sequential Transcription- During transcription RNA is transcribed in to seven mRNA's that will become individual viral protein carriers.
4. Replication- Once the viral proteins rise something tells the cells to switch from translation to replication.
5. Budding- The newly replicated cells start budding, destroying the cell.
6. Release- Now the virus is released from the cell.
Prevention of Ebola
There is no vaccine for Ebola.
If you are going to a part of Africa where there has been an outbreak:Wash your hands often and practice hygeine carefully
Do not handle any items that have come in contact with an infected person
Avoid contact with bats and nonhuman primates or blood
Avoid funeral or burial services of those who might have had the virus
Avoid Faculties in West Africa were Ebola is being treated
