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.
