Figure. Phylogenetic relationships of dengue virus isolates from Mauritius inferred by envelope (E) gene sequence by using the maximum likelihood method as implemented in PAUP* version 4.0b10 (http://paup.csit.fsu.edu/about.html). Primers used for amplification of product for sequencing were 5′-AATCCAGATGTCATCAGGAAAC-3′ and 5′-CCTATAGATGTGAACACTCCTCC-3′. The E gene sequences were consolidated from overlapping, bidirectional sequences. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
