De·pen·do·vi·rus (də-penґdo-vi″rəs) [L. dependere to depend on + virus] adeno-associated viruses; a genus of viruses of the subfamily Parvovirinae (family Parvoviridae) that require coinfection with an adenovirus or herpesvirus to provide helper functions for replication. If no helper virus is present, the genome can be integrated into the host cell DNA, resulting in latent infection. Asymptomatic infection is common.
