  • a Present, present in all; absent, absent in all; RFLP I or II, RFLP pattern I or pattern II, respectively.

  • b Results from BLAST analysis (BLASTn) with the unfinished serotype 4b sequence (http://www.tigr.org). None, no significant alignment; insertion-deletion, insertion and deletion in the same region relative to EGD.
