Figure

Phylogram comparing the novel spirochete in the bat tick Carios kelleyi with Borrelia parkeri, B. turicatae, and B. hermsii based on the concatenated partial 16S rRNA-flaB-glpQ DNA sequences in the Carios spirochete (1,992 bp total) (produced with ClustalV software from DNASTAR [Madison, WI, USA]). Scale bar represents the number of base substitutions per 100 aligned bases. GenBank accession numbers for the C. kelleyi spirochete sequences used to construct the tree are EF688575, EF688576, and EF688577. Spiro, spirochete.
