Severe Dengue Epidemics in Sri Lanka, 2003–2006
Figure 5. Phylogram of dengue serotype 2 viruses (DENV-2) from Sri Lanka (SL), 1981–2004, and other DENV-2 viruses. The tree is based on a 239-bp fragment for positions 2311–2550 coding for amino acids at the envelope protein/nonstructural protein 1 junction. The tree was constructed as described in Figure 4 and was rooted by using a DENV-2 sylvatic strain. Classification and naming of different DENV-2 genotypes is based on the report by Rico-Hesse (5). Scale bar represents number of base substitutions per site.
