Figure 4. Phylogenetic tree inferred from alignment of Anaplasma phagocytophilum DOV1 sequence types obtained in this study. Inference was made by using the neighbor-joining algorithm. The stability of proposed branching order was assessed by bootstrapping (1,000 replicates). At nodes present in >50% of replicates, the percentage of replicates possessing the node is indicated. The DOV1 sequences obtained in this study have been deposited in GenBank under the accession nos. FJ469653–FJ469666. Scale bar indicates nucleotide substitutions per site.
