Mice infected with an adenovirus mutant in which the E3 region is deleted, including TNF-resistance genes, develop fatal liver pathology within 3-4 days after infection. At least 10-fold more wild-type virus was needed to cause comparable pathology. These results indicate that the E3 region is critically involved in modulating the pathogenesis of adenovirus infection and that TNF may play a role in liver damage. To explore the latter possibility, the course of disease was examined in infected...[Show more]
