Identification of polypeptides of the tree shrew (Tupaia) adenovirus

Intervirology. 1980;14(5-6):272-6. doi: 10.1159/000149196.


The virion polypeptides of the Tupaia (tree shrew) adenovirus were analyzed by SDS-polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis and by isoelectric focusing. The viral proteins from either nonradioactive or 35S-methionine-labeled virions formed distinct patterns of at least 15 polypeptides which were different from those of known human and animal adenoviruses. Two-dimensional analyses revealed the presence of 18 discernible polypeptides.
