From: Phylogenetic analysis of erythritol catabolic loci within theRhizobiales and Proteobacteria

Figure 4

Mesorhizobium loti contains paralogs of LalA. Thephylogeny of the L-arabitol catabolic gene LalA is depicted.Mesorhizobium loti contains a copy of lalA withinan independent suboperon like the other Mesorhizobium species,as well as a second lalA homolog within the erythritol locus(FigureĀ  1). The branch corresponding to theadditional homolog within the erythritol locus is highlighted in red.The tree was constructed using ML and Bayesian analysis. Support foreach node is expressed as a percentage based on posterior probabilities(Bayesian analysis) and bootstrap values (ML). The branch lengths arebased on ML analysis and are proportional to the number of substitutionsper site.
