Rotavirus serotype G6 has been demonstrated to be a rare cause of gastroenteritis in man. To date, only a few well characterized strains have been described from Italy, Australia, and the United States. Nucleotide sequencing of G6 VP7 genes shows that these strains belong to two distinct G6 lineages, one for strains of serotype P11[14],G6 (PA169-like strains) and one for strains of serotype P3[9],G6 (PA151-like strains). In this study, we sequenced the VP7 genes and VP8* gene fragments of human… CONTINUE READING
