Abstract

Productive infection of human heteroploid cells with human adenoviruses leads within the first hour after infection to uncoating and passage of parental DNA into the cell nucleus [17]. Transcription of the viral DNA starts immediately and continues throughout the infectious cycle which lasts for around 25 hours [9, 18, 34]. Two functionally different periods of transcription can be recognized: 1. an early phase preceeding viral DNA synthesis, involving transcription of mRNA from 10–20% of the DNA sequences [5, 6] (this mRNA probably codes for the early antigens, “T and P” antigens [7, 30]) and 2. a late phase beginning at the onset of viral DNA synthesis, 5–6 h after infection, where specific adenovirus mRNA is transcribed in increased amounts and from a large fraction of the virus genome (80–90%) [9, 18]. Late in infection the protein synthesizing machinery of the host cell is almost entirely engaged in synthesis of virus-coded proteins necessary for the formation of mature virus [31].
