Figure. Phylogenetic tree constructed by using the neighbor-joining method and evaluated using the interior branch test method with MEGA4 software (www.megasoftware.net). Percentage of bootstrap support is indicated at each node. GenBank accession number, source, and country of origin are indicated. A) Phylogenetic tree constructed based on the 519-nt segment in the 3C/D junction region, a genotype C Aichi virus strain is included as an outgroup. Phylogenetic trees constructed from the capsid gene (B) and complete genome of Aichi virus (C); the porcine kobuvirus is included as an outgroup. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
