*92 full-length VP1 amino acid sequences were obtained from GenBank, including 46 HPeV1, 4 HPeV2, 31 HPeV3, 3 HPeV4, 4 HPeV5 and 4 HPeV 6 VP1 amino acid sequences. The accession nos. are AAA72291, AAB32466, AAB23363, AAC79756, ABC41566, ABK54353, ABS82455, ABS82457–82462, ABX79460, ABX79453, BAC23086, BAD05057–05062, BAF63403, BAF76536–6596, CAA06679, CAI64373, CAJ84483~84484, NP_046804, NP_740386, Q66578, and Q9YID8. HPeV, human parechoviruses; VP1, viral protein 1.
