    Abstract

    The amino acid sequences of the envelope (E) protein of four encephalitogenic and five non-encephalitogenic dengue 3 virus strains isolated in Malaysia were determined and compared. Multiple sequence alignment revealed a high degree of similarity in the E protein of the strains suggesting that neurovirulence of these four encephalitogenic strains is not attributed to this protein.
