What is impact of viruses have on prokaryotic cells and eukaryotic cells?
The cell structures of prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells are different and that the impact and mechanism of viruses attacking them is different as well.


In eukaryotes cells, the virus has receptors for the cells that it can attack. It then enters and replicates its genetic material in the nucleus and spreads its influence which when unmitigated tempers with the metabolism of the organism. For these cells, the virus has to rack through many cells before the infection is full-blown.


In prokaryotic cells e.g. bacterium, a virus can be
deterred out
because of different methylation patterns which the bacterium can detect; it can have
lysogenic impact
i.e. the virus enters the cell passively, spreads its viral DNA and eventually attacks the cell at a later time; it may also attack the bacterium immediately in what is called
Lytic infection
. The main difference in the viral action is that prokaryotic cells are generally unicellular organisms and thus the lines of difference are stringent. They have a repositor system on which the gene-editing technology CRISPR is based.
