MLST-sequence based UPGMA-tree and the arrangement of the six different marker genes within the six defined groups (twelve subgroups). On the left side the MLST-sequence based UPGMA-tree of 266 C. jejuni isolates is depicted. The numbers shown on the branches of the tree indicate the linkage distances. The right side of the table lists all isolates in the order of the UPGMA-tree depicting the source of the isolate, the presence or absence of the six marker genes and their belonging to one of the groups listed in Table1. Source: Human isolates are marked blue, chicken isolates yellow, bovine isolates red, and turkey isolates green. Marker genes: Presence of a genetic marker is marked with a light red shade, absence with a light green shade. The marker genes from left to right are: cjj1321-6:O-linked flagellin glycosylation locus; fucP: L-fucose permease gene (cj0486); cj0178: outer membrane siderophore receptor; cj0755: iron uptake protein (ferric receptor cfrA); ceuE: enterochelin uptake binding protein; pldA: outer membrane phospholipase A; cstII: LOS sialyltransferase II; cstIII: LOS sialyltransferase III; The last column gives the group according to Table1: light grey (1A), light yellow (1B*) intense yellow (1B**), dark yellow (1B***) cyan blue (2A), bondi blue (2B), carrot-orange (3A*), orange-red (3A**); rust-red (3B), turquoise , red , steel-blue  and white (singeltons).
