Phylogenetic analyses of amdoparvoviruses. A) Phylogenetic tree based on the viral NS1 gene. B) A phylogenetic tree based on the major capsid VP2. RFAV and other published amdoparvovirus sequences were aligned by using the MUSCLE program in MEGA5.2 (9), which used a P-distance model with 1,000 bootstrap replicates to generate phylogenetic trees of NS1 and VP2 aa sequences. GenBank accession numbers of isolates or strains are shown on the tree. Canine parvovirus was used as an outgroup. AMDV, Ale

AMDV, Aleutian mink disease virus; GFAV, gray fox amdoparvovirus; RFAV, raccoon dog and fox amdoparvovirus; NS, nonstructural protein; VP, viral structural protein. Sequences obtained from this study are shown in bold. Scale bars indicate nucleotide substitutions per site.
