Analysis of a genotype G3P9 rotavirus a strain that shows evidence of multiple reassortment events between animal and human rotaviruses
The species A rotaviruses (RVA) are important gastroenteric pathogens that infect humans and animals. RVA genotype G3P has been described in human-animal reassortment events, and the complexity of its hosts motivates ...
G1P 8 Rotavirus in children with severe diarrhea in the post-vaccine introduction era in Brazil: evidence of reassortments and structural modifications of the antigenic VP7 and VP4 regions
Worldwide rotaviruses A (RVA) are responsible for approximately 215,000 deaths annually among children aged <5 years. RVA G1P remains associated with >50% of gastroenteritis cases in this age group. The aim of this study ...
Phylogenetic analysis of human group C rotavirus in hospitalized children with gastroenteritis in Belém, Brazil
Group C rotavirus (RVC) is potentially an important pathogen associated with acute gastroenteritis (AG), especially in outbreaks. This study aims to detect and molecularly characterize RVC in hospitalized children with AG ...
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 ...
