Alignment of HEV71 and CVA16 genomes in the binding location of primer pair MAS01S/MAS02A. Dots "." indicate nucleotide identity with the primer sequence; In degenerate positions, R is A or G; Y is C or T. Primer MAS01S anneals to nucleotide position 2352 to 2375 while MAS02A anneals to nucleotide position 2728 to 2709, both relative to BrCr-CA/USA/70.
