Flu virus lifecycle

medical illustration of A primary tumor within the colon metastasizing. During metastasis, tumor cells produce proteins, called proteases, which helps degrade the tissue around them. At the same time, the tumor cells stop producing the proteins that normally keeps them tightly connected and contained. These processes allow the tumor cell to infect distant sites through intravasation.
Next medical illustration of In a process called autophagy, cells cannablize themselves to clean out toxins, recycle used nutrients and to help control disease. Although scientists have known about the process for decades, recent discovery of the genes involved has allowed scientists to better understand how autophagy disequilibrium can influence disease. This infographic shows autophagy instigation by a lack of nutrients, to chopping up proteins and mitochondria, to expulsion of the basic nutrients back into the cell.
