Figure 1. Genome organization of the canine norovirus GIV.2/Bari/170/07/ITA. The genome (from the 3′ end of open reading frame 1 [ORF1] to the poly-A tail) of the canine strain and of the human GGIV.1 norovirus, Fort Lauderdale/560/98/US (AF414426) was plotted against the genome of the strain lion/GGIV.2/Pistoia/387/06/ITA (EF450827). Sequences were analyzed with Simplot (11) by using a window size of 200 nt and step size of 20 nt with gap strip off and Hamming correction on. The conserved shell (S) domain and the variable regions (P1 and P2) are also indicated.
