TABLE 1

Genetic distances between and within the genotypes described in the literature for 2,167 hRSV group A sequences of the G-protein ectodomain

TABLE 1
  • a Pairwise distances were calculated between individual genotypes, as well as within each genotype, using MEGA software version 6. BioEdit version 7.0.9.1 was used for amino acid analysis (20). Boldface indicates P values between genotypes GA2 and NA1, NA2, NA4, and ON1 that are below the intragenotypic distance for GA1, which was taken as the minimal threshold for clustering sequences in different genotypes. Therefore, the NA1, NA2, NA4, and ON1 genotypes were regrouped within the GA2 genotype in Table 2.
