Molecular characterization of a rare G9P(23) porcine rotavirus isolate from China

Molecular characterization of a rare G9P(23) porcine rotavirus isolate from China The fifth most important G genotype, G9 rotavirus, is recognized as an emerging genotype that is spreading around the world. Sequence analysis was completed of a rare group A rotavirus, strain G9P(23), that was designated rotavirus A pig/China/NMTL/2008/G9P(23) and abbreviated as NMTL. It was isolated from a piglet with diarrhea in China. Nucleotide sequence analysis revealed that the VP7 gene clustered within the G9 lineage VId. The VP4 gene clustered within the rare P(23) genotype. NMTL is the first porcine G9 stain reported in China. Thus, to further characterize the evolutionary diversity of the NMTL strain, all gene segments were used to draw a phylogenetic tree. Based on the new classification system of rotaviruses, the NMTL sequence revealed a G9–P(23)–I5–R1–C1–M1–A8–N1–T1–E1–H1 genotype with close similarity to human Wa-like and porcine strains. The results showed that (i) NSP2 and NSP4 genes of NMTL exhibited higher genetic relatedness to human group A rotaviruses than to porcine strains, (ii) the VP2 and VP4 genes clustered with porcine and porcine-like human strains, and (iii) VP1 genes clustered apart from the Wa-like human and porcine clusters. In view of rotavirus evolution, this report provides additional evidence to support the notion that the human and porcine rotavirus genomes might be related. Archives of Virology Springer Journals
