a In zoonotic case 2 (Z2) one nucleotide in the gp60 sequence clearly showed how a dominant variant of C. felis shifted to another when transmitted from one host (cat) to another (human). The nucleotide in position 833 differed between the cat (G) and the owner (A). Massive parallel sequencing of the cat sample, covering the named position 62 times, showed that one of the 62 reads indeed had the adenine (A) found in the human sample. b All other cats and humans in the study had A in this specific position
