Bovine adenoviruses 1 to 10 BAdV1 to

Originally 10 serotypes of BAdV were described, five are now in the genus Mastadenovirus and five (BAdV 4-8) remain unassigned viruses in the family Adenoviridae. Associated worldwide with respiratory infection and conjunctivitis in cattle. Serological evidence suggests a high incidence of infection. Replication with CPE in bovine kidney cell cultures. Agglutination of erythrocytes of several species: mouse, monkey, cattle, horse, goats, guinea pig and hamster. Types 3 and 8 are oncogenic in newborn hamsters. On the basis of sequence, BAdV-1,-3 and -10 have been reclassified as A, B and C. BAdV-9 is now recognized as a strain of Human adenovirus C and BAdV-2 is a strain of Ovine adenovirus A.

Bovine astrovirus (BastV) There are two recognized serotypes of Bovine astrovirus.

bovine astrovirus 1 and 2 (BastV-1 and BastV-2) Species in the genus Astrovirus similar, morphologically, to Human astro-virus. Can be grown in primary bovine kidney cell cultures in presence of trypsin. Isolated from calves with diarrhea, in association with calicivirus, coronavirus and rotavirus. No clinical signs attributable to bovine astrovirus infection have been reported.
