Phylogenetic trees of selected enterovirus (EV) 68 strains, based on the nucleotide sequence of 2 genomic regions: A) partial 5′ nontranslated region and B) partial viral protein 1. EV68 strains analyzed in this study are indicated by black circles. Phylogenetic analysis was performed by using nucleotide alignments and the neighbor-joining method, as implemented in MEGA software (www.megasoftware.net). Poliovirus 1, EV70, and EV94 sequences were used as outgroups. Scale bar indicates number of n
