  1. Data was obtained from GenBank database using the following accession numbers: M. haemocanis strain Illinois (CP003199.1), M. haemofelis strain Ohio2 (CP002808), ‘Candidatus Mycoplasma haemominutum’ strain Birmingham 1 (HE613254.1), M. suis strain Illinois (CP002525), M. pneumoniae (U00089), M. gallisepticum (AE015450), M. genitalium (L43967), M. penetrans (BA000026). Paralogous gene families were assigned using BLASTclust, with 70% coverage and 30% sequence identity thresholds.
