Figure 3. Phylogenetic analysis performed on nucleic acid sequences of large gene of lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) sequences using Bayesian inference. Bayesian posterior probabilities were used to assess node support. Lunk virus from Mus minutoides (Africa) was used as outgroup. All sequences obtained in this study were submitted to GenBank (accession nos. MZ568450–7, MZ558311–3, MZ568449). Names of LCMV strains are composed of GenBank accession number, strain name, host species, and place and country of origin (if known) or isolation. Country code is defined as ISO code (https://countrycode.org). Colors indicate LCMV strains isolated from wild rodents where there is a match between expected mouse subspecies on the basis of geographic region and sampling area: blue, Mus musculus domesticus; red, M. musculus musculus. Arrows indicate known origin of mice subspecies on the basis of genetic data, asterisks (*) indicate LCMV strains from this study, and lineages are indicated by roman numerals. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site. Mmd, M. musculus domesticus; Mmm, M. musculus musculus; Mmm_lab, laboratory mouse strain derived from M. musculus musculus; Mm_lab, laboratory mouse strain; Mm_sp, Mus musculus spp.
