Technical Data
R3000-01D
Rotavirus, ICP, Late Structural Virion Antigens
Description:
Rotaviruses, members of the family Reoviridae, are a major cause of diarrhea in young mammals. Human rotaviruses, the major etiological agents of severe infantile diarrhea worldwide, display very diverse and complex serotypic specificities. Rotaviruses are 70nm, non enveloped viruses comprised of a triple layered protein capsid; Outer capsid proteins are VP4 and VP7, Inner capsid -VP6 and Core -VP2. The immunity acquired from exposure to rotavirus appears to be type specific following initial infection. Therefore, multiple serotypes of rotavirus mean multiple opportunities for infection. The combination of animal reservoirs for the virus and rotavirus gene reassortment provides the potential for dramatic genetic shifts (similar to influenza virus) which could give rise to altered host ranges and viral virulence.
