*PARV4, parvovirus type 4; PARV4-p, porcine PARV-4; PHoV, porcine hokovirus; BHoV, bovine hokovirus; PARV4-g1, PARV4 genotype 1; PARV4-g2, PARV4 genotype 2; PARV4-g3, PARV4 genotype 3.
†Pairwise sequence comparisons were performed by using the ClustalW program ( as described in Figure 2 and percentages of sequence identities were calculated. Nucleotide sequences representing the equivalent regions (position 248–5088, numbered according to the PARV4 sequence NC_007018) were used to align the DNA fragments.
