Deduced amino acid sequence identities (%) between the partial G gene of Red fox and Otter fecal phlebovirus and selected other viruses belonging to the genus Phlebovirus. Table S2. Deduced amino acid sequence identities (%) between the partial NP gene of Red fox and Otter fecal phlebovirus and selected other viruses belonging to the genus Phlebovirus. Figure S1. High divergence of the deduced amino acid sequences of the major capsid loops of various theiloviruses, including Genet fecal theilovirus. Deduced amino acid sequences of the major surface structures of various viruses of the species Theilovirus (VP2 Puffs A and B, VP3 knob and VP1 loops 1 and 2) were aligned. The numbers indicate the locations of the amino acids on the deduced amino acid sequence of the polyprotein of Theiler’s encephalomyelitis virus isolate TOB15 (EU718732).
