Dendrogram of variable ORFs. Multiple amino acid based cluster analysis using UPGMA (BioNumerics, Applied Maths NV, Belgium). The phylogenetic trees of gene lag-1 and of the ORFs 6, 7 and 8 are shown. ORF 9 is identical to the phylogenetic tree of ORF 8 and is therefore not shown. Similarity values and branch distances were depicted in percentages [%]. The strain-specific mAb-subgroup is indicated in brackets. The mutated start codon of lag-1 of Görlitz 6543 was neglected for similarity analysis and is indicated with †.
