The G1 genogroup was detected in the higher rates in the sampling sites nearer to the plant, but the contamination rate of G 2 was higher at St.
Among outstanding questions is whether it protects against strains other than norovirus genogroup 1, its target.
Thomas Smith, principal investigator, at The Donald Danforth Plant Science Center whose recent article, Structural Basis for Broad Detection of Genogroup II Noroviruses by a Monoclonal Antibody That Binds to a Site Occluded in the Viral Particle, in the Journal of Virology was selected by the editors as an, "Article of Significant Interest, sighting the extreme norovirus flexibility suggested by these results may allow for broad antibody recognition, a finding of potential vaccine significance.
13) Noroviruses from genogroups III and V infect cows and mice and strains from genogroup II can infect pigs and from genogroup V, cats and dogs.
Other methods explored include a real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) assay for the detection to NoVs genogroup I and II, and validated assays using genetically different NoV strains.

Real-time reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) was used to detect genogroup GI and GII norovirus.
On April 10, 2014, Cepheid announced the launch of Xpert Norovirus, a qualitative in vitro diagnostic test for rapid identification and differentiation of Noroviruses genogroup I (GI) and genogroup II (GII), which account for the majority of human infections.
Another challenge, he said, is that antibodies are only cross-protective within the same genogroup.
