Figure 2. . . Phylogenetic analysis of monkey hepatitis E virus (HEV) Inuyama strain on the basis of nucleotide sequence of the HEV genome except for a 5′ noncoding region (7,206 nt) by using avian HEV as an outgroup. Values along the branches are bootstrap values determined on the basis of 1,000 resamplings of datasets. Boldface indicates strain isolated in this study. Genotypes are indicated on the right. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
