Percentage identity of the partial amino acid and nucleotide sequences of VP8* genes of KH210 and selected rotavirus P[6] strains*

Strain (lineage) Species (country) Deduced amino acid identity, % Nucleotide identity, %
M37 (Ia) Human (Venezuela) 90 89
221/04–7 (Ib) Porcine (Italy) 94 92
134/04–10 (Ic) Porcine (Italy) 95 93
ES51/04 (Id) Porcine (Spain) 92 91
Gottfried (II) Porcine (USA) 85 82
AU19 (III) Human (Japan) 87 81
BP1198/98 (IV) Human (Hungary) 90 86
BP1227/02 (V) Human (Hungary) 88 85

*The amino acid and nucleotide sequence identity of VP8* genes of KH210 and KH228 were 99%. The amino acid sequence identity of VP8* genes between KH228 and Gottfried was 84%. Otherwise, the identity of amino acid and nucleotide sequences of VP8* genes of KH228 and selected rotavirus P[6] strains were same as for KH210.
