Figure 1. . . Molecular phylogenetic analysis of small (S) and medium (M) gene segments. Consensus neighbor-joining phylogenetic tree (Tamura-Nei 93 evolutionary model) of hantavirus strains was constructed as described (9) based on partial sequences of the S (panel A) and M segment (panel B). Bootstrap values >70%, calculated from 10,000 replicates, are shown at the tree branches. Sequences taken from GenBank are indicated by their accession numbers. SAAV Est, Saaremaa virus from Estonia; DOBV AnoP, Dobrava-Belgrade virus (lineage DOBV-Af) from Greece; DOBV Slo, Dobrava-Belgrade virus (lineage DOBV-Af) from Slovenia; DOB SK, Dobrava-Belgrade virus (lineage DOBV-Aa) from Slovakia; HTNV, Hantaan virus; SEOV, Seoul virus; ANDV, Andes virus; SNV, Sin nombre virus; PUUV, Puumala virus; TULV, Tula virus; PHV, Prospect Hill virus. Scale bars indicate an evolutionary distance of 0.1 substitutions per position.
