Dendrogram showing the phylogenetic relationships of the msp2 sequences of the newly identified strains and other representative sequences from North American Anaplasma phagocytophilum strains (Webster strain–Wisconsin and USG3 strain–eastern United States), and from A. marginale Florida strain (msp2 and msp3). Bootstrap values (out of 1,000 iterations) are shown at the nodes. Bar, substitutions/1,000 bp.
