Abstract

Recombination is a well-known phenomenon for enteroviruses. In the present study, a novel recombinant HEV-B strain (ChZJ-1) was found in a 2-year-old child with diarrhea in Zhenjiang, China. The whole genome of ChZJ-1 was determined. Recombination and phylogenetic analysis revealed that ChZJ-1 might have been produced by recombination between coxsackievirus B5 and echovirus 18.
