Article Title: Multilocus Sequence Analysis of Phylogroup 1 and 2 Oral Treponeme Strains
Figure Lengend Snippet: ML phylogenetic tree of oral treponeme 16S rRNA genes. The maximum clade credibility tree topology is supported by bootstrapping for 1,000 replicates (first number) and Bayesian posterior probabilities (second number) separated with a forward slash “/” symbol in percentages; only values over 40% are shown beside the branch nodes. Sequences generated in this study are in boldface type. A scale bar indicates the nucleotide changes per position. Excessively long branches were trimmed in proportion to the scale bar (indicated by “//” on the branches). The respective oral treponeme species (phylogroups) are indicated with different color shadings. The corresponding HOT numbers are also indicated as follows: T. denticola (HOT 584), dark blue; T. putidum (HOT 743), red; T. vincentii (HOT 029), light green; Treponema sp. IA (HOT 231), purple; Treponema sp. IB (HOT 667), light blue; and Treponema sp. IC (HOT 231), orange.
Article Snippet: The results from the ML phylogenetic analysis of the concatenated flaA-recA-pyrH data sets clearly separated T. putidum from T. denticola , with the T. denticola ATCC 700768 (OMZ 830) strain being a notable outlier.
