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.
[G. mastos, breast, hence mammal, + adenovirus]

Adenoviruses (AdVs) are member of the family Adenoviridae, non-enveloped with an icosahedral nucleocapsid containing double stranded DNA genome, divided into five genera: Atadenovirus, Aviadenovirus, Ichtadenovirus, Mastadenovirus and Siadenovirus (Harrach et al., 2012).
HAdVs are members of the genus Mastadenovirus in the family Adenoviridae and cause a wide spectrum of acute and chronic diseases, including acute diarrhea, respiratory illnesses, pneumonias, and pharingoconjunctival fever [4].

Adenoviruses, a major cause of viral conjunctivitis, (1-3) are double-stranded non-enveloped DNA viruses belonging to the family Adenoviridae, genus Mastadenovirus. Fifty-one serotypes of human adenoviruses have been recognized and classified into seven species (A-G) based on genome sequencing, phylogenetic, and biological characteristics.
