Figure. Distribution of human rhinovirus (HRV) and human enterovirus (HEV) sequences used for primer pair studies. The HRV and HEV genotypes from the testing panel (indicated by filled circles) were aligned with the central 154 nt of the 5′ untranslated region (UTR) region of all complete HRV genomes and poliovirus-1. HRV-Ca and HRV-Cc refer to HRV-Cs with 5′ UTR sequences that have phylogenetic origins from either HRV-As or HRV-Cs, respectively. The tree was constructed by neighbor joining of maximum composite likelihood distance implemented in MEGA (www.megasoftware.net).
