Figure. Phylogenetic relationships of enterovirus 71 partial viral protein (VP1) gene sequences. The prototype coxsackievirus A16 (CoxA16-G10) was used as the outgroup virus. The phylogenetic tree shown was constructed by using the neighbor-joining method. Bootstrap values (>95%) are shown as percentages derived from 1,000 samplings at the nodes of the tree. Scale bar denotes number of nucleotide substitutions per site along the branches. Isolates from this study are indicated by * (Brunei) and † (Peninsular Malaysia).
