Two Imported Chikungunya Cases, Taiwan
Figure. Phylogenetic relationships of chikungunya virus (CHIKV) isolates from 2 imported cases in Taiwan. The tree was constructed by the neighbor-joining method using partial nucleotide sequences of envelope protein 1 (E1) gene (255 bp) of 23 CHIKV strains. O’nyong-nyong (ONN) virus sequence was used as the outgroup virus. Bootstrap support values >75 are shown. The 2 imported CHIKV strains in Taiwan are designated by boldface type. Viruses were identified by using the nomenclature of virus/country/strain/year of isolation/GenBank accession no. Scale bar indicates substitutions per site.
