Serotyping of human rotavirus was conducted in 396 Japanese and 100 Thai rotavirus-positive fecal specimens collected from 1995 to 1997. Serotype G9 was found to be the third most common serotype with frequency of 16.2% in Thailand from 1996 to 1997. It was also detected in Japan with a low frequency (0.7%) in this year. The genetic analyses of VP4 and NSP4 genes of these G9 strains showed that 1 strain from Japan possessed P[8] genotype and NSP4 Wa-group with long electropherotype (e-type). In… CONTINUE READING
