Figure 2. Identification of recombinant sequences in the genome of EV-A71 C2 isolates from patients with acute flaccid paralysis in Africa (14-157, 14-250, 13-365, 15-355) by similarity plot against potential parent genomes (CV-A14 strain 14-254; EV-A71 genogroup E strains 13-194, 08-146, and 03-008) and from GenBank (CV-A10, CV-A5, EV-A120). Similarity plot analysis was performed using SimPlot version 3.5.1 (http://sray.med.som.jhmi.edu/SCRoftware/simplot) on the basis of full-length genomes. For the analysis, we used a window of 600 nt moving in 20-nt steps. Approximate nt positions in the enterovirus genome are indicated. The enterovirus genetic map is shown in the top panel. We used the genome of EV-A71 study strain 14-157 as a query sequence. UTR, untranslated region.
