Fig. 1

Sequence-based phylogenetic MLST tree of the SBSEC. The MLST tree comprised commensal animal and human strains, human pathogenic strains and food-derived strains of all SBSEC species. The tree was calculated from the concatenated sequences of the 10 MLST loci of each strain using the neighbor joining algorithm and 1000 bootstrap replications. The tree was rooted to S. alactolyticus DSM20728T. Corresponding STs, alleles and prevalence of dairy adaptation marker genes (lacS/lacZ), origin and isolation source are indicated. Branches were defined and numbered according to the clonal complex specifications
