This is very technical or scientific writing, but to me it should be:

Their mechanism of replication is similar to retroviruses except for the formation of infectious particleS that travel out of the cell to infect other cells.

OR

Their mechanism of replication is similar to that of retroviruses except for the formation of infectious particleS that travel out of the cell to infect other cells.
