Figure 2. Electrophoretic patterns of the dsRNA of G9P rotavirus strains obtained from Australian children with acute gastroenteritis during the rotavirus outbreak, 2001. Electropherotypes of four representative G9P strains isolated from children during the 2001 rotavirus outbreak are illustrated in part A. Lane 1, Alice Springs (Ob-AS-1); lane 2, Darwin (Ob-Dar-1); lane 3, Gove (Ob-Gv-1); and lane 4, Mount Isa (Ob-Gv-1). B) compares the electropherotypes of G9P strains isolated from children prior to the 2001 rotavirus outbreak with a strain isolated in Alice Springs during the 2001 outbreak.
