Isolation of Lagos Bat Virus from Water Mongoose
Figure 1. Neighbor-joining phylogenetic tree comparing nucleotide sequences of the entire nucleoprotein gene (1,350 nt) of a new Lagos bat virus (LBV) isolate from a mongoose in South Africa (Mongoose2004) and representative sequences of all other genotypes of lyssaviruses. Branch lengths are drawn to scale, and bootstrap values for 1,000 replicates are shown for the nodes. Accession numbers for all sequences available from GenBank and full-length nucleoprotein sequences of other LBV isolates from South Africa (1980, 1982, 2003, and 2004) are also included. DUVV, Duvenhage virus; EBLV, European bat lyssavirus; ABLV, Australian bat lyssavirus; RABV, rabies virus; WCBV, West Caucasian bat lyssavirus; MOKV, Mokola virus.
