Analysis of the putative recombination within the gag region. The aligned sequences were classified into subtype B, subtype F, and recombinant subtype B/F on the basis of linearity of subtype assignment for the p17-p24 gag region. Asterisks show characteristic nucleotide patterns for subtypes B and F sequences; dots represent nucleotides homologous to the MN gag sequence; dashes indicate gaps introduced to maintain the alignment; and arrows indicate the potential recombination regions within the

Asterisks show characteristic nucleotide patterns for subtypes B and F sequences; dots represent nucleotides homologous to the MN gag sequence; dashes indicate gaps introduced to maintain the alignment; and arrows indicate the potential recombination regions within the p24 gag fragment. The nucleotide position is marked.
