Molecular Interactions During Adenovirus DNA Replication

Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 199/2)


Over the past 20 years studies on the replication of adenovirus DNA have contributed not only to an understanding of the mechanics of adenovirus DNA replication, but have also shed light on basic processes such as the assembly of nucleoprotein complexes and virus-host interactions. This subject has been reviewed extensively (Hay and Russell 1989; Stillman 1989; Van Der Vliet 1990; Salas 1991), but a number of recent findings have suggested that the time may be ripe for further evaluation of new developments in the field.
