Tick-borne Encephalitis Virus, Zealand, Denmark, 2011
Figure. . . A) Tick collection areas in Denmark. Red indicates ticks sampled from animals; blue indicates flagging. B) Neighbor-joining phylogenetic analysis of a 1,488-nt set of 78 tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV)–Eur E gene sequences including reference strains Neudoerfl (Austria) and Hypr 71 (South Moravia) performed in ClustalW with a 1,000 bootstrap approach (LASERGENE, MEGALIGN, DENDROSCOPE) outgrouped to Louping ill virus (data not shown). Sequence designations of central European strains as in (8). Dark gray indicates Denmark Bornholm clade; light gray indicates Swedish-Norwegian clade. For simplicity, some subtrees were collapsed; these are designated with region and number of sequences in the collapsed subtree in brackets.
