Phylogenetic tree showing genetic relatedness of spike protein amino acid sequence for Mystacina sp. bat coronavirus (CoV)/New Zealand/2013 (shown in boldface) with those of known coronaviruses. Evolutionary history was inferred for 492 informative amino acid sites by using the maximum-likelihood method based on the Whilan and Goldman + F model with gamma distribution and invariant sites in MEGA 5.05 software (www.megasoftware.net). Bootstrap values are calculated from 1,000 trees (only bootstra

Figure 2. . Phylogenetic tree showing genetic relatedness of spike protein amino acid sequence for Mystacina sp. bat coronavirus (CoV)/New Zealand/2013 (shown in boldface) with those of known coronaviruses. Evolutionary history was inferred for 492 informative amino acid sites by using the maximum-likelihood method based on the Whilan and Goldman + F model with gamma distribution and invariant sites in MEGA 5.05 software (www.megasoftware.net). Bootstrap values are calculated from 1,000 trees (only bootstrap values >50% are shown). Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site. TGEV, transmissible gastroenteritis CoV; PRCV, porcine respiratory CoV; SARS, severe acute respiratory syndrome.
