Group A rotaviruses (Rotavirus A) are important enteric pathogens of mammals and birds, although published data about the epidemiology and genetic characteristics of mammalian rotaviruses are disproportionally greater than the corresponding information relating to avian rotaviruses. In this report the authors characterized a pheasant rotavirus strain detected in Hungary. Sequencing and phylogenetic analysis of the partial genome of this rotavirus identified typical chicken rotavirus antigen types, G19P[31], on the genotype constellation (i.e. C4-I4-H4) previously detected in pigeon, turkey and pheasant rotaviruses. These results suggest interspecies transmission coupled with reassortment among avian rotaviruses. The findings of this study help to understand the diversity of rotaviruses in poultry.
