Figure 2. DNA sequences from 10 cattle from a farm in Albemarle County, Virginia, USA, infected with Theileria orientalis Ikeda genotype aligned with 3 GenBank sequences of T. orientalis genotype 2 for the major piroplasm surface protein. Alignment shows 100% consensus. Samples represent cattle from 6 different herds, and 2 samples were obtained at 2 time points. Pink indicates adenine, yellow indicates guanine, green indicates thymine, and purple indicates cytosine. Nucleotides at the top indicate the consensus sequence. The GenBank sequence THEPMiPI is RNA with uracil substituted for thymine.
