Introduction of HIV-2 and Multiple HIV-1 Subtypes to Lebanon
Figure 1. Phylogenetic classification of HIV-2 sequence from Lebanese patient LE25 (arrow) basing on the prot gene (GenBank accession no. AF026912). The tree was generated by the maximum-likelihood method. Numbers at the branch nodes connected with subtypes indicate bootstrap values. The distinct HIV-2 subtypes are delineated. The scale bar indicates an evolutionary distance of 0.10 nucleotides per position in the sequence. Vertical distances are for clarity only.
