Figure. Unrooted tree showing phylogenetic relationships of Corynebacterium pseudogenitalium CCH052683 and other members of the genus Corynebacterium. The tree was constructed by using the DNAstar program (DNAstar Inc., Madison, WI, USA) (Clustal method) and based on a comparison of 785 (546–1,331) nucleotides. European Molecular Biology Laboratory sequence accession numbers are shown. The scale bar shows the percentage sequence divergence. Dotted line indicates a distant phylogenetic group for which the scale is not applicable.
