From: Multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis potentially reveals the existence of two groups of Anaplasma phagocytophilum circulating in cattle in France with different wild reservoirs

Fig. 2

Minimum spanning tree of the 198 A. phagocytophilum samples according to the abortion status of their hosts. Each circle represents a unique MLVA profile. The number of circle partitions corresponds to the number of A. phagocytophilum samples with the same genotype. Circles connected by a shaded background and tick lines differ by a maximum of one of the five VNTR markers, and could be considered as a “clonal complex”. The length of each branch is proportional to the number of differences. Anaplasma phagocytophilum obtained from cattle that have aborted are red, and those from cattle that have not are green. Anaplasma phagocytophilum obtained from other host species are represented in white
