Caption: Adenovirus AD-36. Computer artwork of the adenovirus AD-36, showing the surface structure of the virus's outer protein coat (capsid). AD-36 is one of 51 types of adenoviruses known to infect humans. Most adenoviruses result in cold, flu, inflammation or infection of the body, but AD-36 is unusual in that it may be linked to human obesity and could be contributing to the obesity epidemic. However, scientists do not yet know for certain whether the virus is causing this rise in obesity, so research is still continuing (as of August 2007).
