We determined nucleotide sequences and inferred amino acid sequences of viral protein (VP) 4, VP6, VP7, and nonstructural protein 4 genes of a porcine rotavirus strain (SKA-1) from Japan. The strain was closely related to a novel group of human rotavirus strains (B219 and J19).


Phylogenetic trees for A) viral protein (VP) 4, B) VP6, C) VP7, and D) nonstructural protein 4 genes of group A, B, and C rotaviruses, a novel group of human rotaviruses, and porcine rotavirus strain SKA-1. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
