Adenovirus (AV)

From WikiMD's free health, diet & wellness encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

A group of non-enveloped icosahedral viruses. Adenoviruses are popular gene delivery vehicles because they efficiently transduce many different cell types, including hard-to-transfect terminally differentiated cells. Also, adenovirus gene delivery typically results in higher levels of RNA expression. Infection is independent of cell cycle, so adenoviruses can be used to express RNA in both dividing and non-dividing cells. Integration of the adenoviral DNA into the host genome is rare, which means that there is little chance of insertional mutagenesis. Because of this feature and the fact that most recombinant adenoviruses elicit an immune response in animal systems, these viral vectors are appropriate only for transient RNA expression.
