Nucleotide similarity of 6 Bartonella isolates from patients in France expressing novel zoonotic activity and their most phylogenetically similar published validated species*

Isolate gltA, % rpoB, % Species
MVT01 100 100 B. henselae
MVT02 100 100 B. henselae
MVT03 99.7 99.6 B. henselae
MVT04 100 100 B. tribocorum
MVT05 98.7 100 B. doshiae
MVT07 100 99.9 B. schoenbuchensis

*gltA and rpoB sequences were obtained from genomic sequences. Genome sequences of B. henselae strains MVT01, MVT02, and MVT03 were deposited in GenBank under accession numbers HG965802, NZ_LN879429, and HG969191, respectively; the genome sequence of B. tribocorum strain MVT04 was deposited in GenBank under accession numbers HG969192 and HG969193; the genome sequence of B. doshiae strain MVT05 was deposited in GenBank under accession numbers CCBL010000001–CCBL010000013; the genome sequence of B. schoenbuchensis strain MVT07 was deposited in GenBank under accession numbers HG977193–HG977197; the genome sequences of the reference strains B. henselae strain Houston-1, B. tribocorum strain CIP 105476, B. doshiae strain NCTC 12862, and B. schoenbuchensis strain m07a are available in genBank under accession numbers NC_005956, NC_010161, and NC_010160, NZ_JH725094 to NZ_JH725100 and NZ_KB915627-NZ_KB915629, NZ_CM001846-NZ_CM001845, respectively.
