Scientists discovered in the early 1990s that, in up to 60 percent of human cancers, the protective protein had gone "bad" and lost its ability to halt the spread of damaged cells.
They have a thick protective protein coat, and their cytoplasm - the cell 'jelly' - is partially dehydrated and mineralised.
Unlike most viral RNAs, viroids can't make proteins, nor do they wear a protective protein shell to avoid being torn apart by a host plant's powerful enzymes.

Every virus harbors an inner pearl of genetic material--DNA or RNA--encased within a protective protein shell called a capsid.
There are three main theories on the nature of the scrapie agent: (1) the agent is a virus with unusual characteristics, (2) the agent is a prion--an exclusively host-coded protein that is modified to a protease-resistant form after infection, and (3) the agent is a virino--a small, noncoding regulatory nucleic acid coated with a host-derived protective protein.
