Figure. Phylogenetic analysis of the more variable P1 region of the salivirus/klassevirus isolated from fecal samples of 9 (4.2%) of 216 children with diarrhea in the People’s Republic of China, April 2008–March 2009, and 45 representative strains. Phylogenetic tree was constructed by the neighbor-joining method with 1,000 bootstrap replicates by using MEGA4.0 software (www.megasoftware.net). Bootstrap values are indicated at each branching point. The isolate SH1 is marked with a triangle. Scale bar indicates estimated phylogenetic divergence.
