Adenovirus Transformation

  • Patrick Hearing


Adenoviruses (Ad) were first isolated by Rowe and colleagues in 1953 following the culture of primary cells from human adenoids (Rowe et al. 1953). Virus spread within these cultures was evident by a characteristic cytopathic effect of rounded and clumped cells detaching from the plate. The following year, Hilleman and Werner observed a similar type of cytopathic effect in cultured cells exposed to respiratory secretions from Army recruit with acute respiratory disease (Hilleman and Werner 1954). Common Ad infections are associated with pharyngitis, conjunctivitis and gastroenteritis. These infections are usually resolved quickly, resulting in lifelong immunity to the virus. Acute respiratory disease is a more severe pneumonia-like infection most often found in the military which results in significant morbidity. The adenovirus family is large and contains members that infect a wide range of animals, including monkeys, livestock, mice, birds, and humans. All these viruses...
