Maximum-parsimony bootstrap consensus tree inferred by PAUP* (12) for specimens of Anisakis pegreffii nematodes from patients with gastric anisakiasis (HuC1–HuC8) in Italy. Phylogenetic tree was obtained by mitochondrial DNA cox2 sequences analysis (629 bp) of 1,000 pseudoreplicates related to A. pegreffii previously sequenced and deposited in GenBank. AEH indicates A. pegreffii associated with a previously reported case of intestinal anisakiasis (7). Bootstrap values >70 are reported at the

Figure 1. . . Maximum-parsimony bootstrap consensus tree inferred by PAUP* (12) for specimens of Anisakis pegreffii nematodes from patients with gastric anisakiasis (HuC1–HuC8) in Italy. Phylogenetic tree was obtained by mitochondrial DNA cox2 sequences analysis (629 bp) of 1,000 pseudoreplicates related to A. pegreffii previously sequenced and deposited in GenBank. AEH indicates A. pegreffii associated with a previously reported case of intestinal anisakiasis (7). Bootstrap values >70 are reported at the nodes. Sequences at the mitochondrial DNA cox2 shown here have been deposited in GenBank under accession nos: JQ900759, JQ900760, JQ900761, and JQ900762.
