Cloned PstI fragments of human adenovirus 35 (AV35) genome were compared with the DNA of representatives of human adenovirus subgroups A (type 12), B (type 7), C (types 1, and 5), D (type 8), and E (type 4), using blot hybridization techniques. The E1b region of AV35 was found to be more distantly related to those of other subgroups than E1a regions sequences and examined by others. DNA hybridization was observed only between E1b of AV35 and the DNA of AV4, thus the recombinant constructed might be applied as B-subgroup-specific diagnostic probe. Common nucleotide sequences were detected within the E3 regions of serotypes 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, and 35. On the basis of inter-subgroup homology, and PstI-fragments it may be concluded, that the structure of E3 sequences of AV7 and AV35 DNA are closely related to those of AV3 DNA sequenced by Signas et al. . E4 regions were compared only of serotypes representing subgroups B, C, and D. These sequences were subgroup specific, similarly to E1b regions.
