Stages of retrovirus replication. A retrovirus binds to a target or host cell and is internalized by fusion into the cytoplasm. DNA replication, transcription to RNA within the nucleus, and translation and protein synthesis are involved. A retroviral structure includes a membrane, viral enzymes, RNA with transgene, capsid, matrix, and envelope proteins.
