Interpretive Summary: Fowl aviadenovirus (FAdV) are large DNA viruses that only ireported to infect avian species exclusively. FAdVs have been categorized into five species (FAdV-A to FAdV-E) on the basis of their genome structure and further divided into 12 serotypes, based on a cross-neutralization test. FAdVs are widely distributed and cause varying degrees of associated clinical disease. Some species of FAdVs could cause inclusion body hepatitis, hepatitis-hydropericardium syndrome, adenoviral gizzard erosions, and possibly hypoglycemia and spiking mortality syndrome in chickens. To date, only partial genomes of the FAdV-D from the U.S. are available in public databases. In this study, we report the first complete genome of FAdV-D isolated from the United States.
Technical Abstract: Here, we report the complete genome sequence of fowl aviadenovirus D (FAdV-D) isolated from a preserved 24-year-old pancreas sample of a broiler chicken embryo. The results of the sequence showed that the viral genome is 44,079 bp long.
