Viral DNA Genome Entering the Host Cell Nucleus
through Pores in the the Nuclear Membrane


In the case of most viruses with a DNA genome, the genome enters the nucleus of the host cell. In this example, the DNA genome is released from the capsid, enters the cytoplasm of the host cell, and subsequently enters the nucleus of the host cell through the pores in the nuclear membrane.
