Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of established dengue virus 3 serotypes and new sequences from Pakistan identified in this study. The tree is based on a 238-nt sequence alignment comprising the C/PrM/M gene (nucleotides: 179–417 dengue virus 3 prototype [NC_001475]). The bar shows the number of substitutions per bases weighted by the Tamura-Nei algorithm. Horizontal distances are equivalent to the distances between isolates; numbers at nodes indicate support values for the branch of the tre

Figure. Maximum-likelihood phylogenetic tree of established dengue virus 3 serotypes and new sequences from Pakistan identified in this study. The tree is based on a 238-nt sequence alignment comprising the C/PrM/M gene (nucleotides: 179–417 dengue virus 3 prototype [NC_001475]). The bar shows the number of substitutions per bases weighted by the Tamura-Nei algorithm. Horizontal distances are equivalent to the distances between isolates; numbers at nodes indicate support values for the branch of the tree inferred at the node. The origins of the sequences used to reconstruct this tree are detailed in the Table.
