Abstract

This study reports on the surveillance for rotavirus genotypes and the identification of G12 human rotavirus in the Northern Region of Brazil. Rotavirus-positive samples were collected from children <5 years of age with acute diarrhea from January 2008 to October 2010. G2P(4) was the most prevalent genotype, accounting for 45.6% (126/303) of cases. Five rotavirus strains bearing G12P(6) genotype specificity were detected. Phylogenetic analysis of the VP7 gene showed that G12 strains clustered into lineage III. This is the first detection of G12 strains from lineage III in Latin America, broadening the current evidence for the worldwide emergence of this genotype.
