Molecular detection of kobuvirus sequences in stool samples collected from healthy pigs in Japan.
Detection and Genetic Characterization of Group A Rotavirus Strains Circulating among Children with Acute Gastroenteritis in Japan
Examination of the deduced sequences of antigenic regions of VP7 revealed multiple particular amino acid substitutions that correlated with the phylogenetic G1 lineages and sublineages, and a novel nomenclature for G1 is proposed, in which worldwide rotavirus G1 strains are classified into 11 lineages with 17 sublines.
Porcine Kobuvirus in Piglets, Thailand
A third candidate species of Kobuvirus has been described in pigs by 2 different groups of investigators from Hungary and the People’s Republic of China and was serendipitously recognized in stool specimens from pigs when PCR products were amplified by using a primer pair for the detection of caliciviruses.
Isolation and Molecular Characterization of Aichi Viruses from Fecal Specimens Collected in Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam
Aichi virus is a new member of the family Picornaviridae, genus Kobuvirus, and is associated with human gastroenteritis and was detected in 28 of 912 fecal specimens collected in Japan, Bangladesh, Thailand, and Vietnam during 2002 to 2005.
Bovine Kobuviruses from Cattle with Diarrhea
An epidemiologic survey of bovine kobuvirus and report detection of this virus in stool samples from calves with diarrhea during 2001–2004 in Chiang Mai Province, Thailand, suggested that bovines kobUVirus is common and that the virus particles could be detected in the stool samples of infected cattle.
Changing pattern of rotavirus G genotype distribution in Chiang Mai, Thailand from 2002 to 2004: Decline of G9 and reemergence of G1 and G2
The study demonstrated a decrease of incidence of G9P[ 8] and reemergence of G1P[8] and G2P[4] rotaviruses in Chiang Mai, Thailand during the period 2002–2004, which implies that the distribution of group A rotavirus genotypes circulating in Ch Xiang Mai,ailand, changes over time.
Genetic Diversity of Norovirus and Sapovirus in Hospitalized Infants with Sporadic Cases of Acute Gastroenteritis in Chiang Mai, Thailand
Stool specimens from hospitalized infants with sporadic gastroenteritis in Chiang Mai, Thailand, between July 2000 and July 2001 were examined for norovirus and sapovirus by reverse transcription-PCR and sequence analysis and one strain was found to be a recombinant Norovirus.
Diversity of Human Parechoviruses Isolated from Stool Samples Collected from Thai Children with Acute Gastroenteritis
HPeV was detected by reverse transcription-PCR with a primer pair that amplified the 5′ untranslated region of its genome and was genotyped by sequencing of the VP1 region and was successfully sequenced from nine of the HPeV strains detected.
Human Parechovirus Infection in Children Hospitalized with Acute Gastroenteritis in Sri Lanka
Of 362 fecal specimens collected from infants and children hospitalized with acute gastroenteritis in Sri Lanka from September 2005 to August 2006, 30 (8.3%) were positive for human parechovirus (HPeV), and HPeV11 was reported for the first time.
