Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of kobuvirus in sheep (kobuvirus/sheep/TB3-HUN/2009/Hungary, GU245693) and kobuvirus lineages in humans, cattle, and swine, according to the 862-nt fragment of the kobuvirus 3D/3′ untranslated regions. The phylogenetic tree was constructed by using the neighbor-joining clustering method with distance calculation and the maximum-composite likelihood correction for evolutionary rate with MEGA version 4.1 software (www.megasoftware.net). Bootstrap values (based on 1,000 replicates) are given for each node if >50%. Reference strains were obtained from GenBank. Boldface indicates virus detected in sheep. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
