Mastadenovirus

Mas·tad·e·no·vi·rus

(mas-tad'ĕ-nō-vī'rŭs),
A genus of the family Adenoviridae, including adenoviruses that infect mammals, with over 40 antigenic types (species) being infective for humans. They cause respiratory infections in children, epidemic acute respiratory disease in military recruits, acute follicular conjunctivitis in adults, epidemic keratoconjunctivitis and gastroenteritis; many infections are inapparent.

Human adenoviruses (HAdVs) consist of nonenveloped, double-stranded DNA and belong to the family Adenoviridae, genus Mastadenovirus.
Five microliters of RNA/DNA eluate were tested by broad range reverse transcription-PCR (RT-PCR) assays for the whole subfamily Coronavirinae (16), the family Astroviridae (4), and the genus Mastadenovirus (18).
The AdV constituted a novel Mastadenovirus species (GenBank accession no.
The obtained sequence of a fragment of the DNA polymerase gene ([approximately equal to] 550 bp) indicated that the viruses were a novel virus type within the genus Mastadenovirus and was tentatively named bat adenovirus 2 (bat AdV-2) strain P.
In addition, a phylogenic tree based on amino acid sequences indicated that RV1 belongs to family Adenoviridae, genus Mastadenovirus (Figure).
