Phylogenetic analysis of Orthohepevirus A sequences. The analysis comprised partial hepatitis E virus (HEV) sequences (283 nt from the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase region) from this study, representatives of Orthohepevirus A genotypes 1–7 and Orthohepevirus C (GenBank accession no. GU345042) as an outgroup. The phylogenetic tree was calculated with MEGA 6.0 (http://www.megasoftware.net) by using the neighbor-joining algorithm and a nucleotide percentage distance substitution model. Bootstrap val

Bootstrap values (%) of 1,000 repetitive analyses >75 are shown next to the nodes. New camel HEV sequences obtained in this study are in red. Scale bar represents the genetic distance. All sequences obtained in this study are deposited in GenBank (accession nos. KM820907–KM820915 and KU201324–KU201330). UAE, United Arab Emirates.
