Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree inferred from concatenated N-P-M-G-L sequences of bat lyssaviruses. The neighbor-joining method (Kimura 2-parameter) was used as implemented in MEGA4 software (www.megasoftware.net). Bootstrap values (500 replicates) are shown next to branches. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site. Virus isolated in this study is shown in boldface. RABV, rabies virus; ABLV, Australian bat lyssavirus; ARAV, Aravan virus; KHUV, Khujand virus; BBLV, Bokeloh bat lyssavirus; European bat lyssavirus; IRKV, Irkut virus; DUVV, Duvenhage virus; SHIBV, Shimoni bat virus; LBV, Lagos bat virus; MOKV, Mokola virus; WCBV, West Caucasian bat virus.
