GB virus C (GBV-C) is a positive-strand RNA virus that infects a large proportion of the world's human population. It has been classified tentatively as a member of the Flaviviridae family and has been shown to exist as a group of five closely related genotypes. Recently, we reported the first full-length genome sequence of a genotype 5 isolate from South Africa. As part of the analysis of that sequence, a phylogenetic tree was elucidated from the 5'-untranslated region (UTR) that showed… CONTINUE READING
