Porcine rotavirus B (RVB) has frequently been detected in diarrhoea of suckling and weaned pigs. Moreover, epidemiological studies using ELISA have demonstrated high antibody prevalence in sera from sows, indicating that RVB infections are widespread. Because it is difficult to propagate RVBs serially in cell culture, genetic analysis of RNA segments of porcine RVBs other than those encoding VP7 and NSP2 has been scarcely performed. We conducted sequence and phylogenetic analyses focusing on… CONTINUE READING
