Phylogenetic tree for RNase III protein from the isolated Asaia sp. RNase III enzyme from the isolated Asaia sp. was aligned with the characterized RNase III enzymes from different bacteria and related species. This alignment and clustering was performed by MEGA7.0 software and neighbor-joining method with bootstrapping, respectively, to increase the accuracy of the created tree. The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap values (1000 replicates) is shown next to the branches. The scale-bar corresponds to 0.2 changes per residue. Our target protein is indicated with a black square and the branches of the more similar species are indicated by thick lines. Furthermore, subjects which have low similarity to others (Escherichia coli, Mycobacterium tuberculosis and Streptococcus pneumoniae) are marked by black triangles
