Phylogram of four different Rubisco enzymes in various bacteria. Phylogenetic tree of forms I (CbbL1, CbbL2), II (CbbM), and IV (RLP, Rubisco-like protein) of the large subunit of ribulose-1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (RubisCO) from various organisms. The multiple sequence alignments and trees were produced with ClustalW and visualized with MEGA. Bootstrap values indicated at the nodes are based on 1,000 trials. The RubisCOs from A. ferrooxidans are highlighted by blue boxes. Species names are as follows: Archaeoglobus fulgidus, Bacillus subtilis, Chlorobium limicola, Chlorobium tepidum, Hydrogenovibrio marinus, Ralstonia eutropha, Rhodobacter capsulatus, Rhodobacter sphaeroides, Rhodopseudomonas palustris, Rhodospirilum rubrum, Synechococcus sp. PCC6301, Thiobacillus intermedius, and Thiobacillus neapolitanus.
