Mapping of an adenovirus function involved in the inhibition of DNA degradation.

A function involved in the inhibition of DNA degradation has been assigned through complementation tests to a product of region E1b of the adenovirus genome (between 4.5 and 10.5 map units). DNA degradation induced by the adenovirus type 12 (Ad12) cyt mutant H12cyt70 and the Ad5 early deletion mutant dl313 (with the deletion between 3.5 and 10.7 map units) was inhibited by coinfection with Ad5 region E1a (between 0 and 4.5 map units) mutants dl312 and hr1 and region E1b mutant hr6. The defect of inhibition of DNA degradation in Ad5 dl313 was also complemented in 293 cells. This DNase-inhibitory function does not appear to involve polypeptide IX or the 58,000-dalton polypeptide. Wild-type Ad12 induced DNA degradation in hamster embryo cells, suggesting that the DNase-inhibitory function is not expressed in these nonpermissive cells. Additional evidence suggests the involvement of a second viral product which positively influences the DNase activity and which appears to be an early function.[1]
