Family

Adenovirus penton base protein (IPR002605)

Short name: Adeno_Penton_B

Family relationships

None.

Description

This family consists of various adenovirus penton base proteins, from both the mastadenoviridae having mammalian hosts and the aviadenoviridae having avian hosts. The penton base is a major structural protein forming part of the penton which consists of a base and a fibre, the pentons hold a morphologically prominent position at the vertex capsomer in the adenovirus particle [PMID: 1316685]. In mammalian adenovirus there is only one tail on each base where as in avian adenovirus there are two [PMID: 1316685].
