This study reports on the surveillance forrotavirus genotypes and the identification of G12 human rotavirus in the Northern Region of Brazil. Rotavirus positive samples were collected from children years of age with acute ...
Identification of rotavirus G and P genotypes in nursing and weaned piglets in the metropolitan region of Belém, Pará State, Northern Brazil
(Instituto Evandro Chagas, 2012)
Rotaviruses are an important agent of diarrhea in piglets, primarily during nursing and post-weaning with severity. The aim of this study was to identify rotavirus G and P genotypes obtained from piglets reared at five ...
Phylogenetic analysis of probable non-human genes of group A rotaviruses isolated from children with acute gastroenteritis in Belém, Brazil
Rotaviruses (RVs) are the main cause of acute viral gastroenteritis in both humans and young animals of various species such as calves, horses, pigs, dogs, cats, and birds. The genetic diversity of RVs is related to a ...
Molecular characterization of VP4 and NSP4 genes from rotavirus strains infecting neonates and young children in Belém, Brazil
Several reports have identified P specificities in humans and in animals in different countries of the world, but few sequence data are available in public databases. In this work we have characterized the VP4 strains ...
