Figure 1

Phylogenetic trees of the full-length nucleotide sequences of the group A rotavirus (RVA) virus capsid protein (VP) 7, VP4, VP6, VP1, VP2, and VP3 genes. Phylogenetic trees were constructed by using the neighbor-joining method with the Kimura 2-parameter method. Bootstrap values (1,000 replicates) >70% are shown. Filled circles indicate strain RVA/human-wt/TUN/17237/2008/G6P[9] from Tunisia; filled triangles indicate feline RVA strains; and open triangles indicate feline/canine-like human RVA

Figure 1. . . Phylogenetic trees of the full-length nucleotide sequences of the group A rotavirus (RVA) virus capsid protein (VP) 7, VP4, VP6, VP1, VP2, and VP3 genes. Phylogenetic trees were constructed by using the neighbor-joining method with the Kimura 2-parameter method. Bootstrap values (1,000 replicates) >70% are shown. Filled circles indicate strain RVA/human-wt/TUN/17237/2008/G6P[9] from Tunisia; filled triangles indicate feline RVA strains; and open triangles indicate feline/canine-like human RVA strains. GenBank accession numbers of the sequences of reference strains are shown in Technical Appendix Table 2. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
