Sample text

The GAM-1 protein of FAdV-1 has been demonstrated to have an anti-apoptotic effect, and to activate the heat-shock response in the infected cell. GAM-1, in synergy with the protein encoded by ORF22, binds the retinoblastoma protein and can activate the E2F pathway. Some as yet uncharacterized aviadenovirus gene products are similar to proteins of other viruses, such as the nonstructural protein NS1 (Rep protein) of parvoviruses, or triacylglycerol lipase, a homolog of which occurs in an avian herpesvirus (Marek’s disease virus).

Taxonomy Adenoviruses belong to the family Adenoviridae. No higher taxonomical level has yet been established, despite the fact that certain bacteriophages (Tectiviridae), the green alga virus Paramecium bursaria Chlorella virus 1 (Phycodnaviridae), and a virus of Archaea living in hot springs (sulfolobus turreted icosahedral virus) seem to have common evolutionary roots with adenoviruses. There are four official genera in the family. Two genera (Mastadenovirus and Aviadenovirus) comprise adenoviruses that have probably co-evolved with mammals and birds, respectively.
