Figure 2. Phylogenetic tree showing the position of Candidatus Bartonella mayotimonensis among members of the genus Bartonella based on comparisons of concatenated sequences of the 16S rRNA gene, the citrate synthase gene gltA, the RNA polymerase β-subunit gene rpoB, the cell division gene ftsZ, and the 16S–23S rRNA internal transcribed spacer region sequences. The tree was constructed by using the neighbor-joining method and a maximum-likelihood–based distance algorithm. Numbers on branches indicate bootstrap values derived from 500 replications.
