Abstract

Recombinants between an adenovirus type 5 (Ad5) deletion mutant and the Ad12 DNA fragment containing early region 1 (E1) were isolated from cells cotransfected with the EcoRI-C fragment of Ad12 DNA and Ad5 dl312 (deletion in E1A) DNA (rcA) and from cells cotransfected with the SalI-C fragment of Ad12 DNA and Ad5 dl312 DNA (rcB). No recombinant was isolated from cells cotransfected with Ad5 dl313 (deletion in E1B) DNA and restriction fragments of Ad12 DNA. Both rcA and rcB are defective and able to replicate in human embryo kidney (HEK) and KB cells with complementation by dl312. Both rcA and rcB formed Ad12 T antigen g, but not T antigen f, in infected HEK and KB cells. In rcA- and rcB-infected cells, Ad5 E1B and Ad12 E1A genes are transcribed. Heteroduplex and size analyses of rcA-1 or rcB-1 DNA fragments hybridized with Ad12 DNA revealed that rcA-1 DNA has a deletion between 5 and 15 map units with an insertion of a portion of Ad12 DNA (10%) and that rcB-1 DNA has a deletion between 70 and 80 map units with an insertion of a portion of Ad12 DNA (10%). The transformed cell lines, RCAY and RCBY, were established after infection of rat 3Y1 cells with rcA and rcB, respectively. Both Ad5 and Ad12 DNA sequences are contained in the...Continue Reading
