Phylogenetic relationships between the C. elegans lysozymes (red labels) and the invertebrate-type (blue labels), protist-type (green labels), and also c-type, g-type, and phage-type lysozymes (all black labels). The tree was reconstructed from amino acid sequences using maximum likelihood. Branches are drawn in proportion to the inferred number of substitutions per site (see bar in bottom left corner). Bootstrap support from 200 replicate data sets is indicated next to branches. Only values larger than 50 are given. Branches interrupted by two slashes were shortened. The unrooted topology is shown, since the position of a possible root is unknown.
