The VP4 and VP7 of bovine rotavirus VMRI are antigenically and genetically closely related to P-type 5, G-type 6 strains.


We have previously reported the isolation of a bovine rotavirus, designated VMRI, with a super-short electropherotype. We have characterized this strain further as it has shown antigenic differences with the prototype G6 strain NCDV-Lincoln. In this communication, we report the antigenic and molecular characterization and the nucleotide sequence of the VP4… (More)
