Abstract

Genome sequence of the novel reassortant mammalian orthoreovirus strain MRV00304/13, isolated from a calf with diarrhea from the United States.

Abstract

Mammalian orthoreovirus (MRV) strain MRV00304/13 was isolated from diarrheic calves. The serotype-specific antigen σ1 was found to be 95% identical to that of bovine MRV1. All predicted viral proteins had >92% identity to those of MRV except µ2 and σ1s (80 and 72% identities, respectively), suggesting that MRV00304/13 is a novel reassortant MRV1.
