How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Article
Full-text available
Human adenoviruses (HAdV) are causing a broad spectrum of diseases. One of the most severe forms of adenovirus infection is a disseminated disease resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. Several reports in recent years have identified HAdV-31 from species A (HAdV-A31) as a cause of disseminated disease in children following haematopoetic...
Article
Full-text available
The penton base is a major capsid protein of human adenoviruses (HAdV) which forms the vertices of the capsid and interacts with hexon and fiber protein. Two hypervariable loops of the penton are exposed on the capsid surface. Sequences of these and 300 adjacent amino acid residues of all 51 HAdV and closely related simian adenoviruses were studied...
Article
Full-text available
The fiber shaft of human adenoviruses (HAdVs) is essential for bringing the penton base into proximity to the secondary cellular receptor. Fiber shaft sequences of all 53 HAdV types were studied. Phylogeny of the fiber shaft revealed clustering corresponding to the HAdV species concept. An intraspecies recombination hot spot was found at the shaft/...
Patent

Various systems and methods for creating, storing, structuring, displaying, enhancing, and/or referencing publications and related content in an online user network are described. In some embodiments, a plurality of “anchors” are dispersed throughout the document, allowing document portions to be referenced in terms of the anchor(s) associated with...

One of the most severe forms of adenovirus infection is the life threateningdisseminated disease, frequently caused by serotypes of species C.Recently, type 31 from species A (HAdV-A31) also caused disseminatedinfections in stem cell transplanted children in several countries of the EU.HAdV-A31 is now clearly associated with infections of stem cell...

This project was for developing a molecular typing system for human adenoviruses. We identified highly variable gene regions (loop1, loop2 in the hexon gene). Those areas are part of the neutralization properties, in contrary to the fiber gene (hemagglutination properties). Structural Analysis of hexon, fiber and penton were performed in order to enable rational design of adenoviral gene therapy vectors.
