Noncytocidal Infections 81
The "typical" virus-cell interaction described in Chapter 3 was a productive infection of a permissive celt by a cytoadal (iytic) virus, that is, resulting in the production ot infectious virions and the death of the host cell. It is important to appieciate that some cytocidal virus-cell encounters are nonproductive (abortive) and that some productive infections arc noncytocidal (nonli/ttc) (Table 5-1)
