Resolving ambiguities in genetic typing of human enterovirus species C clinical isolates and identification of enterovirus 96, 99 and 102.


Molecular methods, based on sequencing the region encoding the VP1 major capsid protein, have recently become the gold standard for enterovirus typing. In the most commonly used scheme, sequences more than 75% identical (>85% amino acid identity) in complete or partial VP1 sequence are considered to represent the same type. However, as sequence data have… (More)
