Figure. Cladogram derived from nucleotide sequences of Tazar-2, Tazar-8, and other hantaviruses. Numbers denote Genbank accession numbers. The cladogram was derived from the neighbor-joining estimated phylogeny and bootstrap analysis using p-distance estimates. The phylogenetic analysis was performed by using PAUP 3.1.1 (vers. 4.0.0d64). Numbers at each internode or bifurcation represent bootstrap support based on 1,000 replicates. A Sin Nombre virus sequence (L37904) was used as the outgroup to root the tree. Tazar 2 and Tazar 8 have been submitted to Genbank and received accession numbers AF085336 and AF085337, respectively.
