Figure 3. Partial nucleotide sequence alignment of the intergenic region between I73R and I329L in African swine fever virus (ASFV) isolates from eastern and central Europe, including a virus isolated in 2007 in Georgia (Georgia2007; GenBank accession no. FR682468.1). The mutation that results in the insertion of a single nucleotide internal repeat sequence (GGAATATATA) in the ASFVs from Belarus, Ukraine, Lithuania, and Poland is indicated by gray shading.
