Figure 2

Partial DNA sequence alignment of the hemagglutinin gene. Case-patient 1’s isolate sequence is displayed at the top (2008–025). Dots in the alignment indicate identical nucleotides at that position. The reference sequences shown: current smallpox vaccine strain (VACV_ACAM2000), a commonly used laboratory vaccinia strain (VACV_WR), Dryvax vaccinia strains (VACV_Duke and VACV_3737), natural Brazilian vaccinia isolates (VACV_BeAn and VACV_Cantagalo), a 2003 US monkeypox outbreak isolate (MPXV_US03)
