Phylogenetic analyses of 184 partial rrs sequences from 14 Leptospira species resolves 25 unique alleles
. The tree was reconstructed using the neighbor-joining method as implemented in MEGA ver 5.0 [15
]. A total of 45 polymorphic sites were demonstrated. The vertical numbers shown indicate the nucleotide position based on rrs
of L. interrogans
serovar Lai [GenBank: AE01300.1
], and a dot indicates an identical nucleotide at that position.
