And now explanation for UW question #1408 states that it uses plasma membrane.
So, where's the truth?
and btw do they really think that we are able to remember not only freaking viral families, who is ss or ds or segmented, who has envelopes but also remember where did this or that virus get its envelope??
I think it is plasma membrane if I remember correctly. I'm fairly positive that it is not the nuclear membrane.
