The putative new adenovirus type from the Harris hawk, the Bengal eagle owl, and the Verreaux's eagle owl clustered into the genus Siadenovirus in a common branch with turkey adenovirus type 3.
(10-12) The genus Siadenovirus consists of turkey adenovirus type 3, marble spleen disease virus, and chicken splenomegaly virus.
As examples, Atadenoviruses and Siadenoviruses have generally poor in vitro replication capability, and the frog Siadenovirus can only be propagated on turtle heart cells, whereas turkey adenovirus type 3 can be propagated in embryos or young birds, but not in conventional cell lines.
