Figure 2. Phylogenetic relationships among Tacaribe serocomplex viruses from the United States, Mexico, and South America, as determined on the basis of Bayesian analyses of A) full-length glycoprotein precursor gene sequences and B) full-length nucleocapsid protein gene sequences. Arenavirus AV B1030026 is shown in boldface. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site. Probability values in support of the clades were calculated a posteriori, clades with probability values >0.95 were considered supported by the data (20), and asterisks at nodes indicate that clades were supported by the data.
