Genetic Variation in the VP7 Gene of Human Rotavirus Serotype 3 (G3 Type) Isolated in China and Japan


Sequence analysis of the VP7 gene was performed on twenty-one human isolates of serotype 3 related-rotavirus in China and Japan. The five Chinese isolates were found to be not similar to the 16 Japanese isolates and to SAff11 (simian rotavirus). The Chinese isolates, especially CHW2 and CH-32, were different from the major serotype 3 human isolates. AU-1… (More)
