Weanling outbred mice were more than 500 times less susceptible to orally administered mouse adenovirus (MAdV) strain K87 than to MAdV-FL. Mouse susceptibility to MAdV-K87 was age-dependent but not obviously host genotype-dependent. Infant F344 rats were not susceptible to infection with either MAdV strain.
