Figure

Neighbor-joining tree of Old World arenaviruses, showing position of 2 arenaviruses found in blood samples of Lemniscomys rosalia and Mus minutoides mice (boldface), based on the analysis of partial sequences of the RNA polymerase gene. Phylogeny was estimated by neighbor-joining of amino acid pairwise distance in MEGA 4 (10). Numbers represent percentage bootstrap support (1,000 replicates). Two New World arenaviruses, Pirital and Pichinde, were used as outgroups. See Table 2 for virus strains
