Replacement changes found in N and H genes from subacute sclerosing panencephalitis patients. Comparisons were made with D6 genotype reference strain (New Jersey, USA/94/1). Sample Buenos Aires.ARG/21.98 was taken as a consensus sequence for the 1998 Argentine outbreak (ARG21.98). Numbers indicate the position in A-nucleoprotein and B- hemagglutinin protein, respectively. Dots designate the same residue as genotype D6. Nonsilent changes are represented by single letter amino acid code. Antigenic
