Phylogenetic relationship of RacPyV with representative polyomavirus species. Phylogenetic trees were individually generated on the basis of amino acid sequences of LT-Ag (A), sT-Ag (B), VP1, and VP2 (C, D) by using the neighbor-joining method with p-distance and 1,000 bootstrap replications. RacPyV, raccoon polyomavirus; LT-Ag, large T-antigen; sT-Ag, small T-antigen; VP, viral protein; GorPyV, gorilla polyomavirus; ChPyV, chimpanzee polymavirus; MCPyV, Merkel cell polyomavirus; OraPyV, orangut
