  • a % I/% S, percentage of amino acids identical (I) and similar (S) to the corresponding homologous proteins; HadV-B, human adenovirus B; ADEB3 (BadV3), bovine adenovirus type 3; ADEP5, porcine adenovirus type 5; ADE17, human adenovirus type 17; ADECC, canine adenovirus type 1; ADE07, human adenovirus type 7; ADEP3, porcine adenovirus type 3; ADECU, canine adenovirus type 1; ADE02, human adenovirus type 2; ADE41, human adenovirus type 41; ADEB10, bovine adenovirus type 10; ADEB2, bovine adenovirus type 2; ADE40, human adenovirus type 40; ADE05, human adenovirus type 5; ADEG1, fowl adenovirus type 1; NTP, nucleoside triphosphate. The homology values of the TAV E1A exons 003R and 007R are given for the complete corresponding protein of human adenovirus B (HAdV-B). The individual ORFs are numbered in the order in which they appear in the TAV genome, with the designation L for theoretical transcription to the left or R for theoretical transcription to the right. Missing numbers, represent TAV ORFs that were declared not to code for viral proteins and were therefore omitted from the table. Out of a total of 109 ORFs, 38 ORFs were selected to code for viral proteins according to the criteria described in Materials and Methods. The names written in parentheses in the first column correspond to the names of the corresponding homologous proteins of other adenoviruses. The sites and signatures found in the amino acid sequences of the potential TAV proteins were determined by the program PROSITE of the PC/GENE software package and the ExPASy Molecular Biology Server and by homology searches to known proteins of other adenoviruses. These sites and signatures are putative, and future experiments have to confirm their actual functionality.
