Phylogenetic relationship of the S, M, and L RNA segments of Rift Valley fever viruses. Maximum likelihood analysis of the nucleotide (nt) sequence differences among a 661-nt region of S RNA segment (Panel A), a 708-nt region of the M RNA segment (Panel B), and a 176-nt region of the L RNA segment (Panel C) of RVF viruses was performed by using PAUP4.0b10 (Sinauer Associates Inc., Sunderland, MA).
