Figure 1

Clonal phylogeny of Escherichia coli strains of various pathotypes inferred from distances at synonymous sites in sequences of 13 concatenated loci (mutS was not included) by using the neighbor-joining algorithm. This consensus tree has numbers at each node, representing the percentage of bootstrapped trees in which the node was observed. SC373/2 and RN587/1 are the two O157 strains from Brazil. The other pathogenic strains included in the figure are described in Reid et al. (9). The serotype of

HNT denotes a nontypeable flagellar antigen.
