The synthesis of infectious virus is reduced by 99% in adenovirus type 2-infected KB cells maintained at 42 C in suspension. Studies to delineate the steps in virus biosynthesis blocked at 42 C revealed the following. (i) The inhibition of ribosomal ribonucleic acid (RNA) synthesis and the block in the conversion of ribosomal RNA precursors to ribosomal RNA(More)
Thirty-nine temperature-sensitive (ts) mutants that fail to grow at 39.5 degrees C but develop normally at 33 degrees C have been isolated from a nitrous-acid-treated stock of a wild-type strain of type 2 human adenovirus. The frequency of ts mutants among the surviving viruses was about 10%. Complementation tests in doubly infected cell cultures at(More)
