Figure 4

RHDVa-specific epitope between residues 340 and 440 of the VP60 capsid protein. A portion of the CLUSTAL W alignment of the VP60 sequence for 45 isolates of RHDV and 1 isolate of a non-pathogenic rabbit calicivirus (RCV) is shown. The top reference sequence for the alignment came from the Brescia 1989 strain (BS89 Italy) and identical amino acids were indicated by a dot. Note the large number of shared amino acid substitutions within the RHDVa clade (shaded blue).
