Abstract: A novel rotavirus strain (Dhaka6) isolated from a 21-year-old Bangladeshi male patient was characterized by sequence analysis of its VP7 and VP4 gene segments. Phylogenetic analysis of the VP7 gene of the Dhaka6 strain revealed a common evolutionary lineage with porcine G11 rotavirus strains. This isolate is the first reported G11 rotavirus strain infecting a human host. Comparison of the VP4 gene sequences with all currently recognized 24 different P genotypes revealed only low nucleotide (54 to 71%) and amino acid (52 to 76%) sequence identities. This lack of high sequence similarity in the VP4 gene indicates that the Dhaka6 isolate represents a new group A rotavirus P genotype, to which we propose assignment of the designation P[25].
