Table 2 Number of isolates from tick and EM samples and IGS and OspC types distribution across genospecies

From: Ability to cause erythema migrans differs between Borrelia burgdorferi sensu lato isolates

Borrelia species Isolates from Haplotypes of
  Ticks (n) EM (n) IGS (#) OspC (#)

B. garinii 29 1 7 11
B. burgdorferi ss 5 0 3 2
B. valaisiana 8 0 2 5

Total 108 44 31 47 (45*)
  1. n: number of isolates; #: number of haplotypes. * Some OspC haplotypes were found in several genospecies, therefore entries in this column do not add up to 45. ** OspC could not be determined.
