Respiratory Tract Reinfections by the New Human Metapneumovirus in an Immunocompromised Child
Figure. Comparison of the partial amino acid sequences of Human Metapneumovirus (HMPV) isolates 1 (recovered in 1998) and 2 (recovered in 1999) for the fusion protein (residues 1 to 253). The sequences were aligned with the reference sequence from the Netherlands (GenBank accession no. AF371337). Asterisks denote identical residues; the shaded boxes highlight different amino acids between the two HMPV isolates from this study.
