The article presents a research attempting to describe the identification of adenovirus in grey squirrels using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) in Anglesey, Wales. Findings of the retrospective analysis of postmortem tissues and ongoing prospective sampling are given. It claims that this investigation is the first molecular confirmation of the presence of adenoviral DNA in body issues from grey squirrels.

    Human adenoviruses (HAdVs) are recognized as causal agents in a wide range of human diseases. However, researchers lack sufficient data on the exact HAdV species and serotypes associated with adult acute respiratory tract infections (ARTIs). To detect and characterize HAdV infections in adults...
