Group a Rotavirus Detection in Calves and Piglets from Honduras and Panama
International Journal of Pathogen Research, Volume 10, Issue 3,
The epidemiology of animal rotaviruses infection and their association with illnesses in humans remains unknown in Central America and the world. In this study, we performed a genotyping of rotavirus strains by RT-PCR for-G (VP7) and P (VP4), in samples of diarrhea in calves and piglets, in Honduras and Panama. Mixed infections and combinations of genotypes G (VP7) and P (VP4) were identified in calves in Honduras: 3 (4%) G2P , 2 (2%) G2P , in piglets: 4 (5%) G4P , and in calves in Panama: 63 (72%) G10 P , 12 (13%) G8 P , 9 (10%) G6 P  and 3 (3%) G10 P .This investigation represents the first report of bovine and porcine rotavirus strains in Honduras and Panama.
