|Sequence region||Length, nt||Nucleotide differences from SAT 3 UGA/1/13, %†
|5′ UTR‡ + L||1,680||24.0||24.1||22.7|
*BEC, Bechuanaland (former name for Botswana); FMDV, foot-and-mouth disease virus; L, leader protein coding sequence; SAT, Southern African Territories; UGA, Uganda; UTR, untranslated region.
†The sequences below were published previously (13).
‡The region from the poly(C) tract to the first initiation codon was used for the comparison.
