  author={K. V. V. Krishna Mohan and Chintamani D Atreya},
  journal={Virus Genes},
We report here nucleotide sequence and characterization of gene 11 from two tissue culture-adapted ATCC1 rhesus (RRV) and human (Wa) strains of rotavirus. Gene 11 sequence encodes a nonstructural protein, NSP5 and also encodes NSP6, from an out of phase open reading frame. Sequence of RRVATCC gene 11 represents the first report from a rhesus rotavirus which has more than 90% homology at the nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequence level with that of its closely related simian SA11 strain.

Molecular characterization of a porcine Group A rotavirus strain with G12 genotype specificity
This is the first report of detection of an animal rotavirus strain with G12 genotype specificity, and detection of strains like RU172 provides vital insights into the genomic diversity of Group A rotaviruses of man and animals.
Characterization of a second open reading frame in genome segment 10 of bluetongue virus
The data presented provide an initial characterization of this ORF and in both mammalian and insect cells, BTV S10-ORF2 deletion mutants (BTV8ΔS10- ORF2) displayed similar replication kinetics to wt virus.
Molecular characterization of rare bovine group A rotavirus G15P[11] and G15P[21] strains from eastern India: identification of simian SA11-like VP6 genes in G15P[21] strains
Molecular evidence for bovine origin of G15 strains is provided and a rare instance of genetic diversity in the bovines VP6 gene is revealed, otherwise conserved in group A rotavirus strains from cattle.
Reduced expression of the rotavirus NSP5 gene has a pleiotropic effect on virus replication.
The data presented in this work suggest that NSP5 is a key protein during the replication cycle of rotaviruses.

Expression and purification of rotavirus proteins NSP5 and NSP6 in Escherichia coli
This is the first report of expression and purification of NSP5 and NSP6 recombinant proteins in suitable amounts for further structural analysis of rotavirus protein toxicity in Escherichia coli.
Whole-genomic analysis of rotavirus strains: current status and future prospects.
In the last few years following the advent of the whole-genome-based genotype classification system, the whole genomes of at least 167 human group A rotavirus strains have been analyzed, providing a plethora of new and important information on the complex origin of strains, inter- and intra-genogroup reassortment events, animal-human reassortment Events, zoonosis, and genetic linkages involving different group ARotavirus gene segments.


Sequence analysis of normal and rearranged NSP5 genes from human rotavirus strains isolated in nature: implications for the occurrence of the rearrangement at the step of plus strand synthesis.
We determined the nucleotide sequences of normal and rearranged NSP5 genes from the human rotavirus strains (Mc323 and Mc345, respectively) which had previously been isolated from Thai infants with
Rotavirus SA11 genome segment 11 protein is a nonstructural phosphoprotein
It is concluded that the primary gene 11 product is a nonstructural phosphoprotein which the authors designated NS26 and which did not neutralize virus infectivity in plaque reduction neutralization assays.
Mutations selected in rotavirus enterotoxin NSP4 depend on the context of its expression.
It is suggested that cytotoxic functions of NSP4 are not operant during natural rotavirus infection, and mutations in the carboxy-terminal half of N SP4 are selected when NSP 4 is expressed in cells in the absence of other viral proteins, but not in the context of viral replication.
Phosphorylation generates different forms of rotavirus NSP5.
It is found that, as a consequence of phosphorylation, a complex modification process gives rise to previously unidentified forms of NSP5, with molecular masses of up to 34 kDa, suggesting that N SP5 is autophosphorylated.
Characterization of unusual G8 rotavirus strains isolated from Egyptian children
It is demonstrated that the understanding of the geographic distribution of rotavirus strains is incomplete, the need to monitor rota- virus serotypes is emphasized, and the known distribution of serotype G8 and genotype P[14] strains in Africa is extended.
The C-terminal domain of rotavirus NSP5 is essential for its multimerization, hyperphosphorylation and interaction with NSP6.
The interaction domain with NSP6 was found to be present in the 35 C-terminal aa of NSP5, overlapping the multimerization domain of the protein, and suggesting that NSP 6 might have a regulatory role in the self-association of N SP5.
