The gene sequence, excluding the primer sequence, was aligned with the Northern aplomado falcon (Falco femoralis) variant of the falcon adenovirus, the 12 fowl adenoviruses in the Aviadenovirus genus, and Sequencer 3.
Sequence analysis of the falcon adenovirus showed it to be an aviadenovirus with 2 genotypes, varying by 1.
The deaths of the female and male birds were attributed to the Aviadenovirus infection.
with aviadenovirus specific primers of the hexon gene capable of detecting DNA from the 12 fowl adenovirus serotypes (former group I adenoviruses), (1-3) These assays failed to identify adenoviral DNA.
Adenoviruses are currently classified into 4 genera: Mastadenovirus, Aviadenovirus, Siadenovirus, and Atadenovirus.
