Enterovirus 68 in Children with Acute Respiratory Tract Infections, Osaka, Japan
Figure A1. Nucleotide sequences of 5′ untranslated regions of enterovirus 68 strains, Osaka, Japan, October 2009–October 2010. The strain detected in Osaka showed deletions when compared with Fermon and 37–99 strains. Arrow indicates the start codon (ATG) of the viral protein 4 (VP4) gene. Partial nucleotide sequences (corresponding to nt 541–820 of the Fermon strain) of 5′ untranslated regions of Fermon, 37–99, JPOC10–290, JPOC10–378, JPOC10–396, JPOC10–404, and EVP4 primer were aligned by using BioEdit version 7.09 (www.mbio.ncsu.edu/bioedit/bioedit.html). Hyphens indicate deleted nucleotides.
