Novel Bartonella Agent as Cause of Verruga Peruana
Figure 2. . Phylogeny for concatenated sequences of novel Bartonella isolate (boldface), including a 312-character fragment of gltA and a 589-character fragment of rpoB. The neighbor-joining tree method (1,000 bootstrap replicates) was employed using MEGA5 software (11), and the distances were calculated by using the Jukes-Cantor method, in which units are calculated as the number of base pair substitutions per site (10). Brucella melitensis was used as the outgroup.
