Cross-Species Transmission of a Novel Adenovirus Associated with a Fulminant Pneumonia Outbreak in a New World Monkey Colony

Discovery and whole-genome characterization of the novel adenovirus TMAdV.

(A) The locations of the 4 Virochip probes derived from adenovirus sequences and used to detect TMAdV are mapped onto the ∼37 kB genome. The 4 Virochip probe sequences are also aligned with the corresponding sequence in the TMAdV genome, with mismatches highlighted in pink. (B) Coverage map of deep sequencing reads corresponding to TMAdV using BLASTN (blue) and TBLASTX (transparent blue) alignments to SAdV-18. The actual coverage achieved by deep sequencing as determined by alignments to the fully sequenced genome of TMAdV is much higher (red). (C) Genome organization of TMAdV. Predicted protein coding regions are shown as boxes. Boxes above the central black line represent open reading frames (ORFs) that are encoded on the forward strand, while boxes underneath the black line represent reverse-strand encoded ORFs. Early region ORFs are shaded in gray. The x-axis refers to the nucleotide position along the ∼37k genome of TMAdV. Abbreviations: FAdV, fowl adenovirus; SAdV, simian adenovirus; PAdV, porcine adenovirus; HAdV, human adenovirus, TMAdV, titi monkey adenovirus.
