Figure 2

Phylogenetic positions of the bat blood isolates among members of the genus Bartonella. Neighbor-joining (A) and maximum-likelihood (B) trees are based on the alignment of concatenated sequences of 4 multilocus sequence analysis markers (rpoB, gltA, 16S rRNA, and ftsZ). Sequence information from the type strains of all known Bartonella species and from the Candidatus B. mayotimonensis human strain was included into the analysis (Technical Appendix Table 5). Numbers on branches indicate bootstrap
