Table 1 Comparison of potential N-glycosylation sites between different Arenavirus glycoproteins. Numbers indicate amino acid (aa) position of serine/threonine of potential N-glycosylation sites in Arenavirus glycoproteins. Gene bank accession numbers for viral sequences: Lassa-Josiah (J04324), LCMV-Arm (P09991), Mopeia (M33879), Tacaribe (NC_004293), White Water Arroyo (AF228063), Guanarito (AY129247), Sabia (U41071), Junin (D10072), Machupo (AY129248), Pichinde (AF081554).
