Phylogenetic tree based on the complete envelope gene from 58 DENV-3 strains sampled globally. The evolutionary history was inferred using the neighbor-joining method with MEGA 5 software . Each strain is abbreviated with strain name and country of origin followed by the year of isolation. Bootstrap values greater than 0.9 based on 1000 replicates are shown for key nodes. The tree was rooted using DENV-1 strain Nauru, DENV-2 strain New Guinea C and DENV-4 strain B5 as outgroups. The newly DENV-3 isolates in the study are marked with red squares and other Chinese DENV-3 isolates taken for comparison are marked with blue squares.
