Rooted phylogenetic tree showing genetic relationships among Aravan virus and 26 lyssaviruses. Phylogenetic relationships were determined by comparing the 1350-nucleotide sequences of the nucleoprotein (N) gene (a) and the deduced 450-amino-acid sequences (b) by the neighbor-joining method (36). The sequences used were those of genotypes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7 shown in Table 1 by using vesicular stomatitis Indiana virus (VSIV) as an outgroup (tsW16B/U13898).
