Molecular cloning and characterization of the norwalk virus (NV) genome allowed this virus to be classified as a member of the family . Although structural studies confirm that NV contains cup-shaped depressions, these depressions are often clearer in other strains of animal caliciviruses and human caliciviruses (HuCVs). Consistent with the fact that chemical agents are the most important cause of food-borne and waterborne disease, NV is resistant to inactivation following treatment with chlorine concentrations usually present in drinking water, and NV is more resistant to inactivation by chlorine than poliovirus 1, human rotavirus (Wa), simian rotavirus (SA11), or f2 bacteriophage. The cloning and expression of the NV genome resulted in the development of new assays and reagents that permit large-scale epidemiological studies. Much of the understanding of the epidemiology of noroviruses (NoVs) has come from studying the cause of outbreaks of water-borne and food-borne gastroenteritis. The first immunologic assays developed to detect antigen and amenable to large-scale use were radioimmunoassays (RIAs) and, subsequently, enzyme immunoassays (EIAs). Additional antigen detection EIAs were developed using other NoV and sapovirus (SaV) recombinant viruslike particles (rVLPs) as antigens for production of hyperimmune antisera. A number of different primer pairs and different reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR) conditions have been described for the detection of NoVs and sapoviruses (SaVs). Serologic assays are used to determine the presence of virus-specific immunoglobulin M (IgM) in individual sera or rising total antibody levels in paired sera.

Image of FIGURE 2

Genomic organization of NoVs and SaVs. Schematic of the genomic organization of two human genogroup I and II NoVs, the murine genogroup V NoV, and a human genogroup II SaV. The NoVs have three predicted ORFs: ORF1, which encodes a polyprotein that contains the nonstructural proteins NS1 to NS7; ORF2, which encodes the major capsid protein (VP1); and ORF3, which encodes a minor capsid protein (VP2). For SaVs, ORF1 is longer and contains VP1 (see text for details). Nucleotide numbers denoting ORFs are indicated for each of the viruses. Molecular weights of each of the viral proteins are also indicated. Among the NoVs, NS1 and NS2 form a single protein, and for the SaV strain indicated, NS6 and NS7 form a single protein. This information is compiled from GenBank sequences M87661 (NV), AF145896 (Camberwell), AY228235 (murine), and AY237420 (Mc10) and references , and .
