The predominant rotavirus electropherotypes (e-types) during 17 epidemic seasons (1980 through 1997) in Finland were established, and representative virus isolates were studied by nucleotide sequencing and phylogenetic analysis. The virus isolates were either P[8]G1 or P[8]G4 types. The G1 and G4 strains formed one G1 lineage (VP7-G1-1) and one G4 lineage… CONTINUE READING
