Figure. . . Phylogenetic analysis of A) 5′ untranslated region, B) nonstructural protein 3, and C) nonstructural protein 5B regions of nonprimate hepatitis virus sequence amplified from screen-positive study animals. Neighbor-joining trees of nucleotide sequences from each genome region were constructed from Jukes-Cantor corrected pairwise distances calculated by using the program MEGA version 5 (25; datasets were bootstrap re-sampled 500× to indicate robustness of branching [values >70% shown on branches]). The hepacivirus genotype 1a sequence, M62321, was used to root the tree (not shown). Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
