Figure A1. . . Alignment of the G proteins of representative samples of South African human metapneumovirus (hMPV) isolates and prototypes sequences from the Netherlands (NL/1/00, NL/1/99, NL/1/94, and NL/17/00) and Canada (hMPV13-00, CAN97-83, hMPV33-01, and CAN75-98). Only amino acid residues that differed from the Netherlands' prototypes for each subgroup are shown. Identical amino acids are represented by periods; dashes indicate gaps. Arrows above the alignment indicate the proposed intracellular, transmembrane and extracellular domains. Potential N-linked glycosylation sites are underlined. Numbers indicate the amino acid position in the G open reading frames corresponding to the Netherlands' prototype isolates. Download PDF [46 KB, 5 pages].
