Figure 1. Phylogenetic analysis of D-loop sequences of the animal sources of the viruses Sochi/Ap and Lipetsk/Aa (in boldface): Apodemusponticus from the Sochi region (Ap1584/Sochi; EU188455) and A. agrarius from Lipetsk region (Aa1854/Lipetsk; EU188456). Sequences of other Apodemus spp. were obtained from GenBank; accession numbers are indicated at the branch tips. The neighbor-joining tree was constructed by using the Tamura-Nei (TN93) evolutionary model. Values above the tree branches represent the bootstrap values calculated from 10,000 replicates. The scale bar indicates an evolutionary distance of 0.1 substitutions per position in the sequence.
