We sequenced 22 VP6 genes from common rotavirus strains P[8], G1; P[4], G2; P[8], G3; P[8], G4 and P[8], G9 and uncommon type P[6], G9 collected in the US over a 6-year period. All strains defined as members of VP6 antigenic subgroup (SG) I according to reactivity patterns with monoclonal antibodies formed a genetic cluster (Genogroup I) with SG I reference strains. Similarly, all strains in antigenic SGII formed a group (Genogroup II) with corresponding standard strains of the same SG. Most US… CONTINUE READING
