Figure. . Phylogenetic tree of the genotypes of Coxiella burnetii from the samples of this study based on multilocus variable-number tandem-repeat analyses (MLVA) including 12 loci (MLVA-12). Repeats per locus are shown, and open spots indicate missing values. MLVA-6 are results of the analysis with 6 MLVA loci (3). MST are results of the analysis with multispacer sequence typing (MST) (5). MLVA 6 loca (MLVA-6) and MST revealed full genotypes unless stated otherwise. Two strains representing the outbreak genotype of C. burnetii (X09003262, 3345937) in the Netherlands and the Nine Mile (NM) RSA 493 are included as reference. MS, mini satellite; G and I, MLVA-6 genotypes of C. burnetii as published (3,7); MSTxx, MST genotypes as published (5). *Based on partial genotype; part, partial genotype. – (in MST column) indicates no results obtained. Scale bar indicates percentage similarity.
