RotaTeq is a live, oral pentavalent vaccine that contains 5 live reassortant
rotaviruses. The rotavirus parent strains of the reassortants were isolated
from human and bovine hosts. Four reassortant rotaviruses express one of the
outer capsid proteins (G1, G2, G3, or G4) from the human rotavirus parent strain
and the attachment protein (serotype P7) from the bovine rotavirus parent strain.
The fifth reassortant virus expresses the attachment protein, P1A (genotype
P[8]), herein referred to as serotype P1A[8], from the human rotavirus parent
strain and the outer capsid protein of serotype G6 from the bovine rotavirus
parent strain (see Table 7).
