An unrooted phylogenetic analysis of the HA1 gene nucleotide sequence of influenza A H1N1 viruses isolated since 1990. Peru isolates 1621 and 1798 are within the Beijing/262/95 lineage but are more similar to A/New Caledonia/20/99. A number of isolates characterized by Brooks Air Force Base from 1999 to 2001 were also A/NC/20/99-like. The tree was generated by using the Jotun-Hein algorithm (6) in MegAlign software (version 3.18). Horizontal lines are proportional to the number of substitutions between branch points. Asterisk (*) denotes 2000/01 vaccine strain; (1) denotes isolates characterized by Brooks Air Force Base. Brooks Air Force Base isolates are available from Genbank under accession numbers AF268312, AF268313 and AY029287-AY029292.
