Figure 2. . . Phylogenetic relationships based on Anaplasma phagocytophilum ankA gene fragment sequences obtained from wild boars and engorged Ixodes ricinus ticks and selected sequences from GenBank. The scale bar indicates an evolutionary distance of 0.001 nt per position in the sequence. Inference was made by using the neighbor-joining algorithm method (Vector NTI Advance 10.3.010.3.0; Invitrogen Corp., Carlsbad, CA, USA).
