Molecular Biology of S16 (SA7) and Some Other Simian Adenoviruses

  • T. I. Tikchonenko
Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 110)


The adenovirus family includes at present approximately 100 species divided into subgenera according to their natural hosts. Adopting the suggestion of the Simian Adenovirus Working Team (Kalter et al. 1980), simian adenoviruses comprise a subgenus which includes 20 previously described virus species.2 Compared with human adenoviruses, simian adenoviruses have on the whole been studied much less, although theoretically and evolutionarily, relationships between members of all groups of primate adenoviruses seem to be of great interest.
