Phage-related gene analysis of M. catarrhalis prophages. Distance trees displaying the diversity of phage-related genes in M. catarrhalis prophages. a Large terminase subunit. b Small terminase subunit. c Integrase. d Portal. e Plate. f Tail Fibre. The M. catarrhalis prophage names are coloured according to clade assignment in Fig. 1; red = clade 1, blue = clade 2, orange = clade 3, green = clade 4. Reference phage genes, as detailed in the methods section, are coloured purple. Scale at lower left of each panel corresponds to 0.2 nucleotide substitutions per site. The image of a Siphoviridae phage presented in the centre with 100 nm scale [66] is labelled according to the analysed genes. The a terminase large subunit, b terminase small subunit, and c integrase proteins are found inside the capsid, whereas the d portal, e plate, and f tail fibre are structural
