Figure. Phylogenetic analyses of nucleotide sequences of HMPV phosphoprotein showing comparisons with Singapore-Nanyang Technological University (SIN06-NTU*) sequences. *The specimen number acquired during the course of the investigation (e.g., SIN06-NTU14) was made with known strains (highlighted ▲) from Canada [CAN99-81 (AY145294, AY145249), CAN97-83 (AY297749), CAN97-82 (AY145295, AY145250), CAN98-75 (AY297748), CAN98-79 (AY145293, AY145248)], Japan [JPS03-180 (AY530092), JPS03-240 (AY530095), JPS03-187 (AY530093), JPS02-76 (AY530089)], and the Netherlands [NL-1-00 (AF371337), NL-17-00 (AY304360), NL-1-99 (AY525843), NL-1-94 (AY304362)]. Avian pneumovirus type C (APVC AY590688) was used as the outgroup.
