Various combinations of G type and P type were observed in 76 bovine rotavirus (BRV) strains isolated from 235 diarrheal calves in three prefectures of Japan in 1992-1994. The most prevalent combination was G6:P5 (46/76, 60.5%), followed by G10:P11 (13/76, 17.1%), G6:P11 (7/76, 9.2%) and G10:P5 (5/76, 6.6%). No G6:P1 strain of BRV was recognized from the isolates in the present study, though this type of BRV is well known as a suitable vaccine strain against BRV infection.
