Distinct Lineage of Vesiculovirus from Big Brown Bats, United States
Figure. . . Analyses of American bat vesiculovirus (ABVV) compared with other members of the family Rhabdoviridae. A) Genome organization of ABVV; B) Bayesian inference tree of the ABVV N gene; C) Bayesian inference tree of the 5 concatenated ABVV genes (N, P, M, G, L). For the Bayesian analyses, sequences from the entire gene were used, except for a few partially sequenced genomes for which only ≈100 aa were publicly available. Posterior probabilities (>75%) of the Bayesian analysis are shown next to each node. Formally classified vesiculoviruses are labeled with “V,” whereas potential vesiculoviruses not formally recognized by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses are labeled with “V?.” Distinct clades of bat rhabdoviruses are labeled with triangles of different colors: black, vesiculovirus; gray, lyssavirus; white, unclassified. N, nucleoprotein; P, phosphoprotein; M, matrix protein; G, glycoprotein; L, polymerase protein. Scale bar indicates amino acid substitutions per site.
