Figure 3

Amino acid sequence comparison of the putative attachment (G) protein of human metapneumovirus strains per genetic sublineage. For each sublineage only representative samples are depicted, resulting in 24 sequences. Representative sequences were chosen, so that from each year in which samples were obtained at least one sequence is depicted, and sequences with only a few amino acid substitutions were omitted. Potential N-linked glysosylation sites are underlined, and periods indicate the position

Figure 3. Amino acid sequence comparison of the putative attachment (G) protein of human metapneumovirus strains per genetic sublineage. For each sublineage only representative samples are depicted, resulting in 24 sequences. Representative sequences were chosen, so that from each year in which samples were obtained at least one sequence is depicted, and sequences with only a few amino acid substitutions were omitted. Potential N-linked glysosylation sites are underlined, and periods indicate the position of identical amino acid residues relative to the first sequence in each subgroup. Numbers indicate the nucleotide position in the primary G ORF.
