Figure 3. Identification of viral protein 1 (VP1) residues differing between human polyomavirus 9 (HPyV9) and lymphotropic polyomavirus (LPV). The DE, HI, and BC loops that extend outward from VP1 are indicated. The crystal structure of simian virus VP1, derived from strain 3BWQ, was used as a template. The red region in the center indicates part of a β strand, which is mostly hidden. Residues differing between HPyV9 and LPV are indicated by pink squares.
