jws-hep.21345.fig1.pdf79KSupplementary Fig. 1. Phylogenetic tree constructed on the complete genome sequences of HBV isolates. The neighbour-joining tree was constructed in order to compare the sequences of the 14 HBV isolates of different genotypes used in this study (boldface) with 24 sequences representative of the corresponding genotypes obtained from the GenBank (accession numbers are given with the country of origin after slash). Bootstrap statistical analysis was performed using 1,000 data sets with the percentage of occurrences indicated on each node.
jws-hep.21345.fig2.pdf34KSupplementary Fig. 2. Detection of extracellular HBV DNA by RTD-PCR. Viral particles were collected by immunoprecipitation with anti HBs and protein G agerose, and then HBV DNA in them was determined.
