Abstract

Adenoviruses are a widespread cause of diverse human infections with recently confirmed zoonotic roots in African great apes. We focused on savanna-dwelling chimpanzees in the Issa Valley (Tanzania), which differ from those from forested sites in many aspects of behavior and ecology. DNA polymerase gene targeting PCR detected AdV in 36,7% (69/188) of fecal samples. We detected five groups of strains within the HAdV-E and two distinct groups within the HAdV-C species based on partial hexon sequence. All detected AdVs from the Issa Valley are related to those from nearby Mahale and Gombe National Parks suggesting chimpanzee movements and pathogen transmission.
