There appears to be a cascade of cellular responses to CMV infection. These cellular responses involve most cellular organelles and may result in stimulation of some cellular functions in contrast to the cellular response to most viruses. It is highly likely that these responses reflect underlying physiologic changes selected for the efficient replication of CMV. An understanding of these physiologic changes may ultimately permit the control of CMV infections. It is quite possible that the extensive array of early cellular responses also reflects selection of physiologic changes which facilitate the formation of persistent infections in appropriate circumstances.
