To determine the frequency and genotypes of rotavirus strains, samples were collected from children hospitalized with acute diarrhea at the Regional Institute of Medical Sciences, Manipur. The globally common genotypes G1P[8] and G2P[4] constituted 58% of the total positive strains, while 3% and 8% strains were emerging genotypes, G9P[6] and G12P[6]. This(More)
Deduced amino acid sequence and phylogenetic analyses of a group A rotavirus G9P[6] strain (designated as mcs/13-07), detected from a 3-year-old child in Eastern India, revealed a VP8* closely related to porcine P[6] strains (P[6] sublineage 1D), and the VP7 clustered with G9 lineage-III strains. To our knowledge, this is the first report of human P[6](More)
In a community based case-control study in Kolkata, India, in 2009, two human rotaviruses with uncommon genotypes G6P[14] and G11P[25] were identified, having bovine and porcine characteristics respectively. Strain N-1/2009 with G6P[14] and strain N-38/2009 with G11P[25] genotypes, were isolated from a 13months aged boy who was asymptomatic and a 10months(More)
BACKGROUND Group A Rotaviruses are a major etiologic agent of gastroenteritis in infants and young children (<5 years) worldwide. Although rotavirus vaccines have been successfully administered in many countries, in India the introduction of rotavirus vaccine in national immunization program was approved in 2014. Since high disease burden and large number(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a global health problem with an estimated 170-200 million peoples (approximately 3% of world population) are chronically infected worldwide and new infections are predicted to be on rise in coming years. HCV infection remains categorized as a major risk factor for chronic hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma(More)
Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) has been reported to positively regulate rotavirus replication by modulating virus induced PI3K/Akt and NFκB activation. Here, we report the active association of Hsp90 in the folding and stabilization of rotavirus nonstructural protein 3 (NSP3). In pCD-NSP3-transfected cells, treatment with Hsp90 inhibitor(More)
Acute respiratory illness (ARI) is one of the major health problems in tropical countries of Asia, like India where approximately 0.5 million children in the age group of < 5 years die annually. Previously we have reported the genetic characterization of influenza A (Inf-A) strains circulating in Kolkata, eastern India. This study was initiated to(More)
Group A rotaviruses are the major cause of childhood gastroenteritis worldwide. Due to close proximity of human and cattle in rural areas of developing countries like India, interspecies transmission or zoonotic transmission is a major source of rapid generation of reassortants and genetic or antigenic variants. Previously, many human group A rotaviruses(More)
Hepatitis C virus (HCV)-induced chronic liver disease is one of the leading causes of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). The molecular events leading to HCC following chronic HCV infection remain poorly defined. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been implicated in the control of many biological processes, and their deregulation is associated with different viral(More)
