Original Papers


A new adenovirus (candidate Ad36) was isolated from the feces of a girl with enteritis. It has the biological and biophysical properties of an adenovirus, with a particle diameter of 750±10 Å in thin sections and with a fiber length of 190 Å. The virus belongs to subgroup D. It is distinct both in neutralization and hemagglutination-inhibition from all other human adenoviruses; it also shows a unique DNA restriction pattern.
