Orthopoxvirus DNA in Eurasian Lynx, Sweden
Figure 2. Multiple sequence alignment of the partial thymidine kinase (tk) gene obtained from Eurasian lynx (Lynx lynx) compared with the tk gene from other orthopoxviruses (OPVs). OPV-TK-23 represents all 21 sequences obtained from lynx tissues because they had 100% sequence homology. Swe.H1 and Swe.H2 represent 2 cowpox virus isolates from persons in Sweden. No.H1 and No.F1 represent cowpox virus isolates from a human and a felid, in Norway, respectively.
