Recombination analysis of complete genome of coxsackievirus A2 (CVA2), Hong Kong, 2012. A) Genome organization. B) Bootscanning and C) similarity plot analyses were conducted by using Simplot version 3.5.1 (http://sray.med.som.jhmi.edu/SCRoftware/simplot/) (Kimura distance model; window size, 400 bp; step, 20 bp) on a gapless nucleotide alignment generated with ClustalX 2.0 (8) with the genome sequence of CVA2 strain 430895 as the query sequence. In panel B, green line indicates CVA2 prototype s

In panel B, green line indicates CVA2 prototype strain Fleetwood, red line indicates EV71 strain SAR/SHA66 of subgenotype B3, yellow line indicates EV71 strain SZ/HK08–5 of subgenotype C4, and blue line indicates CVA4 strain SZ/CHN/09. P1, capsid protein 1, P2, nonstructural protein 2; P3, nonstructural protein 3; UTR, untranslated region; VP, viral protein.
