Figure. Consensus bootstrap phylogenetic tree based on the nucleotide sequences of the A56R-hemagglutinin gene of vaccinia virus. The tree was constructed with hemagglutinin sequences by using the neighbor-joining method with 1,000 bootstrap replicates and the Tamura 3-parameter model in MEGA3.1 software ( Bootstrap values >50% are shown. Nucleotide sequences were obtained from GenBank. Black dots indicate the vaccinia virus (VACV) analyzed in this study. HSPV, horsepoxvirus; VARV, variola virus; CPXV, cowpoxvirus; MPXV, monkeypoxvirus.
