Figure 3. Unrooted phylogenetic tree of the P2 region from all norovirus GII.4 New Orleans strains submitted to CaliciNet and identified by region D analysis from October 2009 through May 2010 (A) and of the complete major capsid protein viral protein 1 of selected norovirus GII.4 variants (B). Numbers on branches represent bootstrap support out of 100. Symbols represent GII.4 variant types (nomenclature proposed by NoroNet in parentheses): black squares, GII.4 NOLA variant; star, GII.4 New Orleans (2010) variant; circles, GII.4 Minerva (2006b) variant; triangles, GII.4 Riviera (2007) variant; and diamonds, Yerseke (2006a) variant. AUS2008 (GenBank accession no. GQ845367) and Cairo (accession no. EU876888) are unidentified variant types. GenBank accession numbers of GII.4 sequences included in the analysis: Apeldoorn (AB445395), NOLA (GU270580), New Orleans (GU445325), Minerva (EU078417), Nijmegen (EF126966), DenHaag (EF126965), OC07138 (AB434770), SSCS (FJ411171), Yerseke (EF126963), and CL-CS (EU078419). Scale bars represent number of nucleotide (A) or amino acid (B) substitutions per site. P2 sequences can be provided upon request.
