Homologous recombination is a force in the evolution of canine distemper virus

Fig 4

Evidence for homologous recombination in the CDV genome and L gene.

(A) Similarity Plot analysis of the genome sequences of AY445077/98-2645 and its putative parents (EU716337/164071 and EU726268/CDV3). The AY445077/98-2645 was used as the query. The y-axis provided the percentage of identity with a window size of 600 bp and a step size of 20 bp. The vertical line indicated the breakpoint regions. (B) Boot Scan analysis of AY445077/98-2645 and its parent sequences. The y-axis presented the percentage of permutated trees using a sliding window. (E) The similarity plot analysis of the L gene sequences of AY445077/98-2645 and its putative parents (EU716337/164071 and EU726268/CDV3). (F) The Boot Scan analysis of AY445077/98-2645 and its parent sequences in the P gene. The remaining results are the similar as in panels A and B. A PDV isolate, KC80222/PDV/Wadden_Sea. NLD/1998 was used as an outgroup. (C and D) The phylogenetic tree of the segment in different regions in the CDV genome from positions 2134–2504 and positions 1–2133 + 2505–15690 bp. (G and H) The phylogenetic tree of the segment in different regions in the P gene from 345–977 and 1–344 + 978–1524 bp. The recombinant strain and their major and minor putative parents are indicated with “●”, “▲”, and “▼”, respectively. The PDV isolates are marked with a “■”.
