Figure 2

Alignment of HEV71 and CVA16 genomes in the binding location of primer pair 159S/162A. Dots "." indicate nucleotide identity with the primer sequence; In degenerate positions, K is G or T; R is A or G; Y is C or T. The boxed region is the position with the potential to bind to HEV71 template leading to extension and amplification.
