  • a The EEHV1A coordinates are based on Ling et al. (13). Entries shown in parentheses indicate that an incomplete ORF or smaller region was used.

  • b aa, amino acids.

  • c Divergence of EEHV3, EEHV4, and EEHV1A is indicated as follows: EEHV3 and EEHV4 (3/4), EEHV3 and EEHV1A (3/1A), and EEHV4 andEEHV1A (4/1A).

  • d The total guanine-plus-cytosine nucleotide percentages of EEHV3, EEHV4, and EEHV1A (indicated by 3, 4, and 1A in the table) compared to those at just the third nucleotide position in all codons from the predicted proteins.
