AFLP profiles of the representative strains belonging to three monophyletic strains classified as long-term colonizers. The UPGMA dendrogram was constructed based on an average of 238 ± 14 fragments of the AFLP profile. Cophenetic correlation is given at each node. The scale bars for similarity score (%) and fragment length (bp) are shown above the dendrogram and AFLP profile image, respectively. a S-I, subject’s fecal sample collected in early infancy; S-C, subject’s fecal sample collected in childhood; BM, postnatal breast milk sample. bCalculated from the delivery date
