def: "Injection by a non-enveloped virus of the viral genome into the host cytoplasm through creation of a pore or channel in the host cell membrane(s). Usually mediated by a viral pore-forming peptide associated with the viral capsid or bacteriophage tail." [GOC:jl, UniProtKB-KW:KW-1172, VZ:979]
comment: This mechanism is used by animal viruses such as poliovirus. Various tailed bacteriophages also carry specialized proteins which open a pore or a channel in the host membrane(s) to allow genome delivery into host cytoplasm.
