Figure. A) Phylogenetic analysis based on partial nucleocapsid (N) gene nucleotide sequences (159 nt, according to Nipah virus [NiV] Bangladesh sequence, GenBank accession no. AY988601, 168–327 nt) of the 4 NiVs sequenced during this study (boldface). Five sequences of the viruses from Siliguri (8) and from representative NiV sequences obtained from GenBank indicated by the respective accession numbers. Values at different nodes denote bootstrap support. B) Full genome–based phylogenetic analysis of the NiV sequenced from the lung tissue of a patient (boldface). Representative NiV sequences obtained from GenBank are indicated by the respective accession numbers. Values at different nodes denote bootstrap support. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
