Molecular and immunologic characterization of group A bovine rotavirus field isolates with P8(11) spike protein

Molecular and immunologic characterization of group A bovine rotavirus field isolates with P8(11)... Bovine rotavirus strain B223 is the North American prototype for group A P8(11) serotype/genotype rotaviruses. Rotaviruses with this serotype/genotype are a prevalent cause of neonatal calf diarrhea and have also been isolated from asymptomatic human infants. On the basis of deduced amino acid sequence of the outer capsid viral protein 4 (VP4), strain B223 lacks a cysteine at position 318 that is conserved among all other rotavirus strains. It has been speculated that this may result in the loss of disulfide bond and a change in the structure of the VP4 that may affect the infectivity and antigenicity of the virus. This paper describes partial sequences of the VP4 gene (nucleotides 613 to 1 016 coding for amino acid positions 202 to 335) of 16 bovine rotavirus field isolates with P8(11) that were obtained from calves in Nebraska and Indiana. All the isolates lack a cystein at position 203 and had a conserved valine residue at position 318, thus indicating that the prototype strain B223 is representative of group A rotaviruses with P8(11) serotype/genotype. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Virology Springer Journals

Abstract

Bovine rotavirus strain B223 is the North American prototype for group A P8(11) serotype/genotype rotaviruses. Rotaviruses with this serotype/genotype are a prevalent cause of neonatal calf diarrhea and have also been isolated from asymptomatic human infants. On the basis of deduced amino acid sequence of the outer capsid viral protein 4 (VP4), strain B223 lacks a cysteine at position 318 that is conserved among all other rotavirus strains. It has been speculated that this may result in the loss of disulfide bond and a change in the structure of the VP4 that may affect the infectivity and antigenicity of the virus. This paper describes partial sequences of the VP4 gene (nucleotides 613 to 1 016 coding for amino acid positions 202 to 335) of 16 bovine rotavirus field isolates with P8(11) that were obtained from calves in Nebraska and Indiana. All the isolates lack a cystein at position 203 and had a conserved valine residue at position 318, thus indicating that the prototype strain B223 is representative of group A rotaviruses with P8(11) serotype/genotype.
