Figure 3

Sequence alignment of the fusion peptide of the envelope (E) gene of selected yellow fever virus (YFV) strains (E98–E110). The Asibi prototype strain indicates the conserved sequence present in the majority of YFV strains and other mosquitoborne flaviviruses. A salt bridge between residues Asp E98 and Lys E110 generates the "CD loop" of residues E100–E108 (21).
