The emphasis in this chapter is on the regulation and kinetics of adenovirus transcription. Recent references have been selected to provide readers with starting points to explore the background literature. A more complete treatment of earlier work on the subject can be found in Tooze (1980). Two excellent recent reviews on the topic are Flint (1982) and Ziff (1980).
