Avian viral surveillance in Victoria, Australia, and detection of two novel avian herpesviruses

Fig 2

Unrooted maximum likelihood phylogenetic tree for the family Herpesviridae.

Generated from a ClustalW2 alignment of amino acid translations of partial DNA polymerase gene sequences from 40 representative herpesviruses retrieved from GenBank from the three subfamilies: Alphaherpesvirinae (α), Betaherpesvirinae (β) and Gammaherpesvirinae (γ) from a range of host species, and including the two novel alphaherpesviruses detected in this study (highlighted in bold) [60]. The GenBank accession numbers for sequences used are as follows: Accipitrid alphaherpesvirus 1 AY571851; Alcelaphine gammaherpesvirus 1 AF005370; Anatid alphaherpesvirus 1 EF643560; Bovine alphaherpesvirus 1 X94677; Bovine alphaherpesvirus 2 AF181249; Bovine gammaherpesvirus 4 AF031811; Bovine gammaherpesvirus 6 AF031808; Cacatuid alphaherpesvirus 1 MF576271; Columbid alphaherpesvirus 1 AF141890; Elephantid betaherpesvirus 1 AF322977; Elephantid gammaherpesvirus 3 DQ238845; Equid alphaherpesvirus 1 KF434378; Equid gammaherpesvirus 2 NC001650; Equid alphaherpesvirus 4 KT324743; Felid alphaherpesvirus 1 KR296657; Fregatid alphaherpesvirus 1 EU867220; Gallid alphaherpesvirus 1 NC006623; Gallid alphaherpesvirus 2 AF147806; Gallid alphaherpesvirus 3 HQ840738; Gaviid alphaherpesvirus 1 GU130289; Human alphaherpesvirus 1 HQ123098; Human alphaherpesvirus 3 X04370; Human betaherpesvirus 5 NC006273; Human betaherpesvirus 6 X83413; Macacine gammaherpesvirus 5 AF029302; Macropodid alphaherpesvirus 1 NC029132; Macropodid gammaherpesvirus 3 EF467663; Meleagrid alphaherpesvirus 1 AF291866; Murid betaherpesvirus 2 AY728086; Passerid alphaherpesvirus 1 AF520812; Phascolarctid gammaherpesvirus 2 JQ996387; Phocid alphaherpesvirus 1 PHU92269; Phoenicopterid alphaherpesvirus 1 KP244360; Podargid alphaherpesvirus 1 MF576272; Psittacid alphaherpesvirus 1 AY372243; Psittacid alphaherpesvirus 2 AY623124; Psittacid alphaherpesvirus 3 JX028240; Saimiriine gammaherpesvirus 2 AJ410493; Spheniscid alphaherpesvirus 1 KJ720217; Spheniscid alphaherpesvirus 2 LT608135; Suid alphaherpesvirus 1 BK001744; Suid betaherpesvirus 2 AF268042. Percentage support from 100 bootstrap replicates is indicated at major branch points. The scale bar represents amino acid substitutions/site.
