Adenovirus, database # 2C6S Adenoviruses are medium-sized (90â€“100 nm), non-enveloped (without an outer lipid bilayer) icosahedral viruses with a double-stranded linear DNA genome. Adenoviruses are responsible for 5â€“10% of upper respiratory infections in children, and many infections in adults as well. The adenovirus is being tested as a gene therapy delivery vehicle as well as a treatment for a variety of cancers.
