Figure 4. Phylogenetic analyses based on nucleotide sequences of the glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase (461-bp) genes of Borrelia miyamotoi isolates from humans and ticks in northeastern China, May 2013–June 2015, and comparison sequences. Boldface indicates the B. miyamotoi identified in this study; GenBank accession numbers are provided for all isolates. Neighbor-joining trees were constructed by using the maximum-likelihood method in MEGA software version 6.0 (http://www.megasoftware.net). Scale bar indicates estimated evolutionary distance.
