*PB, polymerase basic protein; PA, polymerase acidic protein; HA, hemagglutinin; NP, nucleocapsid protein; NA, neuraminidase; M, matrix protein; NS, nonstructural protein. Red symbols indicate pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus–specific probe results; black symbols indicate SYBR Green results; gray shading indicates sister clade of pandemic (H1N1) 2009 virus for each virus segment.
†N2 and some of the N1 within swine Euarasian avian-like lineage are expected to be double negative in the NA test.
