Restriction mapping and molecular cloning of adenovirus type 4 (subgroup E) DNA.


The locations of thirty restriction endonuclease cleavage sites were determined on the genome of adenovirus type 4 (Ad4), the sole member of the subgroup E adenovirions. The restriction endonucleases Bg/II, EcoRI, HindIII, HpaI, KpnI, SalI, and XbaI cut Ad4 DNA 10, 3, 2, 3, 5, 5 and 3 times, respectively. Orientation of the linear Ad4 map with respect to left and right molecular ends was accomplished by taking advantage of the limited sequence homology between Ad2 and Ad4. Ten non-overlapping fragments of Ad4 DNA representing 98% of the genome, map units 1.6 to 99.6, have been cloned into the plasmid vector pKC7.
