The correlation between the detection of murine norovirus 1 RNA by real-time reverse transcription-PCR and the infectivity by plaque assay before and after heat exposure (80 degrees C) was examined. No correlation was found in the current study. Moreover, heat inactivation had a much stronger detrimental effect on virus infectivity than on the integrity of the viral genome.
