Figure 1. Comparison of the partial nucleotide sequences of human parechovirus (HPeV)-3 Canadian isolates no. 81235, 81554, and 82853 with reference sequences of HPeV-1, -2 and -3 (GenBank accession no. S45208, AF055846, and AB084913, respectively) for the 5′ untranslated region (5′ UTR; corresponding to nucleotides 595 to 699 of the HPeV-3 A308/99 strain, accession no. AB084913) (8,10). Asterisks denote identical nucleotides in all strains, whereas shaded nucleotides highlight differences between HPeV-3 isolates.
