Bovine rotavirus with rearranged genome reassorts with human rotavirus. Brief report

Arch Virol. 1987;96(3-4):257-64. doi: 10.1007/BF01320965.


Bovine rotavirus (brv) possessing a rearranged genome [Hundley et al. (1985), Virology 143: 88-103] was found to reassort with tissue culture-adapted group A human rotavirus carrying a standard genome. The rearranged part of the brv genome containing segment 5-specific sequences was exchanged with the normal RNA segment 5 of the human rotavirus in some of the reassortants.
