Phylogenetic relationships among RCR plasmids based on Rep protein sequences. The evolutionary history was inferred using the Neighbor-Joining method . The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated sequences clustered together in the bootstrap test (1000 replicates) are shown next to the branches . Plasmids from mollicutes are indicated in red (mycoplasmas) and blue (phytoplasmas).
