Abstract:
In this study two enteric viruses, poliovirus and adenovirus type 40, were used to investigate virus - host cell interactions in the gastrointestinal environment. Human enteric adenoviruses have been previously shown to be sensitive to IFN-treatment of cells and a STAT-deficient cell line allows improved growth of enteric adenovirus type 40. Two adenoviral gene products, the virus-associated RNA (VA RNA) and the El A, have been previously shown to be responsible for viral countermeasures against IFN actions in the host cell.
