The recently discovered murine norovirus (MNV) is an important surrogate virus for studying the human norovirus (NoV) because of its ability to replicate in conventional cell cultures using mouse macrophage cell lines. In addition, the impact of MNV is significant due to the high prevalence of MNV in commonly used laboratory animals in biomedical research. The prevalence and molecular characteristics of MNV could differ in various regions of the world. Therefore, the objectives of this study… CONTINUE READING
