RNA genome electrophoretic analysis of rotavirus from feces of epidemic adult diarrhoea occurring in Shandong Province, China.

This article reports the detection of a particle, 52 nm in diameter without capsids, in predominance in the supernatant fluid of fecal samples from 13 of 14 patients with epidemic adult diarrhoea, as

Human serogroup C rotavirus in Finland.

Among 600 rotavirus specimens collected in Finland during 1985-1987, 6 isolates were found to be related to serogroup C rotavirus by RNA profile analysis and solid phase immune electron microscopy

Detection of an atypical rotavirus associated with diarrhoea in Chaco, Argentina.

Investigation of a large waterborne acute gastroenteritis outbreak caused by group B rotavirus in Maharashtra state, India

Absence of other viral agents and identification of RVB of genotype G2 as the etiological agent of the acute gastroenteritis outbreak highlights, the necessity of monitoring RVB, the viral agent known for its large outbreak potential.

A new type of atypical rotavirus in pigs

Two independent isolates of an unusual type of rotavirus were obtained from over 900 faecal samples obtained from piglets with diarrhoea andSerological comparisons showed that the two isolates were related, but unrelated to other known groups of porcine rotav virus.

Human Group B Rotavirus Infections Cause Severe Diarrhea in Children and Adults in Bangladesh

Human group B rotavirus was detected in 12 of 220 adult patients and 2 of 67 child patients with severe diarrhea in Bangladesh and may be an especially serious diarrheal agent in Bangladesh.

Cocirculation of different rotavirus strains in a local outbreak of infantile gastroenteritis: Monitoring by rapid and sensitive nucleic acid analysis

Rotaviruses isolated from 22 patients during a local outbreak of infantile gastroenteritis in October/November 1981 were genotyped by establishing their RNA migration patterns on polyacrylamide gels.

Molecular epidemiology of human rotaviruses in Melbourne, Australia, from 1973 to 1979, as determined by electrophoresis of genome ribonucleic acid

Electrophoretic typing techniques can be applied routinely and reproducibly to small samples of feces and could prove to be of value in epidemiological studies of rotavirus infection.

Isolation from chickens of a rotavirus lacking the rotavirus group antigen.

132 virus was therefore a rotavirus by morphological, biochemical and biological criteria, but by immunofluorescence it was not possible to demonstrate an antigenic relationship between 132 virus and known avian and mammalian rotaviruses, indicating that 132 virus does not possess the group antigen shared by all previously characterized rotviruses.

Characterization of an antigenically distinct porcine rotavirus

The virus was shown to be antigenically distinct from other rotaviruses as judged by immunofluorescence and immune electron microscopy, and it failed to protect piglets from challenge with porcine rotavirus.

Porcine pararotavirus: detection, differentiation from rotavirus, and pathogenesis in gnotobiotic pigs

The use of immune electron microscopy is suggested as a means of helping recognize porcine enteric virus, which resembled rotaviruses in respect to size, morphology, and tropism for villous enterocytes of the small intestine.

Influence of humidity on rotavirus prevalence among Nigerian infants and young children with gastroenteritis

Rotaviruses were detected by counterimmunoelectro-osmophoresis in the feces of 116 infants and young children with gastroenteritis during a 5-month period in Ife, Nigeria during September 1979 through January 1980.

Rotavirus serotypes by serum neutralisation

It is suggested that two or more viral polypeptides might be involved in neutralisation, one of which might be common to another serotype(s), which would explain the frequent cross‐reactions detected by this neutralisation test.

Rapid diagnosis of rotavirus infection by direct detection of viral nucleic acid in silver-stained polyacrylamide gels

A rapid simple technique based on the sensitive detection of rotavirus double-stranded RNA genome segments separated in polyacrylamide gels, which is comparable with that of electron microscopy or enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay.
