The bovine norovirus Bo/Jena/1980/DE and Bo/Newbury2/1976/UK represent two distinct genotypes (1 and 2) within genogroup (G III) in the genus Norovirus of the family Caliciviridae. There are only few norovirus sequences reported from cattle and the capsid sequence of strain Bo/Jena/1980/DE is the only one which is available in GIII/1. To detect bovine noroviruses, 47 fecal samples collected on two calf farms in Central Hungary were tested by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. Four (8.5%) bovine norovirus strains - three genetically identical genotype 2 and a genotype 1 - were detected on the same farm. The full length capsid sequence of the genotype 1 strain (Bo/NoV/Aba-Z5/2002/HUN, EU360814) was characterized. This study confirms the presence of both genotype 1 and 2 bovine noroviruses in cattle in Hungary.
