Figure 1. Phylogenetic tree, based on complete polyprotein sequences of tickborne encephalitis virus (TBEV). Original names of TBEV are presented. The multiple sequence alignments were obtained with ClustalX, and the tree was constructed by the neighbor-joining method. The following sequences were used for the phylogenetic tree: DQ862460 (TBEV, Glubinnoe/2004) ABJ74160 (TBEV, 205); AAN73266 (TBEV, Senzhang); BAB71943 (TBEV, Oshima 5–10); BAB72162 (TBEV, Sofjin-HO); AF069066 (TBEV, Vasilchenko); AAO43537 (TBEV, Zausaev); NP_043135 (TBEV, Neudoerfl); AAA86739 (TBEV, 263); Q01299 (TBEV, Hypr); ABB90676 (Spanish sheep encephalitis virus); BB90675 (Turkish sheep encephalitis virus); NP_044677 (Louping ill virus);NC_001672 (TBEV); AY217093 (TBEV, MDJ-01); AY968065 (yellow fever virus, Uganda); DQ675533 (dengue 3).
