Figure 3. . . . Phylogenetic analysis of hexon (A) and fiber (B) genes of human adenovirus (HAdV) type 7 isolates. Coding sequences of hexon and fiber genes (2,805 and 978 bp) from 5 HAdV isolates from Taiwan in 2011 and reference sequences from the National Center for Biotechnology Information (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank) were included. Phylogenetic trees were constructed from aligned sequences by using the neighbor-joining method; 1,000 bootstrap replications were performed to evaluate the reliabilities. Bootstrap values are shown at branching points. Taxon names include accession number, available genotype, strain name, isolation country, and year. Boldface indicates the isolates collected in Taiwan and reference isolates with identical sequences. TW1494 is from an outpatient; TW018, 019, 025, and 237 are from inpatients. del., deletion. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
