Figure. . Phylogenetic tree showing the genetic relationships between isolates of peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV). The tree was constructed on the basis of 255-nt sequences of the PPRV nucleoprotein gene. Black dots indicate sequences obtained in this study. Lineages are indicated on the right, and GenBank accession numbers are shown in parentheses. Analysis was performed by using the MEGA4 software (6) and neighbor-joining (maximum composite likelihood) methods. Bootstrap support values >70 are shown at nodes (1,000 replicates). The scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
