The expression of SaV VLPs is also needed to determine the cross-reactivity among these recombinant strains, although our results have shown that GI and GV VLPs (capsid-based grouping) were antigenically distinct by an antibody and antigen ELISA (22), which suggests that these 2 recombinant strains are also antigenically distinct from GII strains.
