Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree is based on the nucleotide sequences of 1,178–1,281 bp from nsP3 and nsP4 region, nucleotides 5,258-6,510; the genome position is given according to the published sequence of the strain AR339 (HRsp variant) (2). The tree was constructed by using Neighbor-joining algorithms (NEIGHBOR). 5,000 bootstrap replicates were calculated. Only those bootstrap support values that exceed 50% are shown. The following sequences available in GenBank were included into the comparison: AR339 (HRsp variant); Egypt (J02363, J02364, J02365, J02366, J02367), Girdwood S.A.; South-Africa (U38304), MRE16; Malaysia (AF492770), Ockelbo (Edsbyn 82); Sweden (M69205), S.A.AR86; South-Africa (U38305), SW6562; Australia (AF429428), YN87448; China (AF103734) and XJ-160; China (AF103728).
