Comparison of partial sequences (465 base pairs) of the S segment of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus isolated in Mauritania. The BLAST tool was used and positions of nucleotides in the entire S segment are shown. The strain HD 168662, which is representative of human isolates obtained from this study, shows 82.1% nucleotide identity with the strain HD 49199, isolated from a human case-patient in Mauritania in 1988.
