Alignment of sequence representation demonstrating the nonsense mutations observed in this study. A) Nonsense mutation at amino-terminal of the NS5A genomic region, positions 9, 47 and 84. B) One nonsense mutation located at the middle of the NS5A genomic region position 233, and one nonsense mutation located at the carboxy-terminal of the NS5A genomic region, position 399. Pink boxes indicate nonsense mutations. The next methionines are highlighted in gray. References sequences for genotypes 1a (H77_NS5A1a) and 1b (HCVJ_NS5A1b) are indicated.
