Sinorhizobium fredii encodes TpiB xenologs.
Sinorhizobium fredii contains a second suboperon that
appears homologous to the eryR-tpiB-rpiB suboperon in the
erythritol locus (Figure 1). The TpiB amino
acid sequence was used as a representative of this suboperon to
construct a phylogenetic tree. The branch corresponding to the TpiB
encoded outside of the erythritol locus is highlighted in red. The tree
was constructed using ML and Bayesian analysis. Support for each node is
expressed as a percentage based on posterior probabilities (Bayesian
analysis) and bootstrap values (ML). The branch lengths are based on ML
analysis and are proportional to the number of substitutions per
site.
